Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Isn't the command grub-install /dev/sda what you do to write grub to boot from sda ?
I ran that command from fedora 11 but it still wants to boot from WindowsXP
The two hard drives are not set up master, slave , they CS selected on a Dell
Here is my menu.lst file.
I do have a separate /boot partition sdb1
WindowXP is on sda
Fedora 11 is on sdb
With this menu.lst, I did a, grub-install --recheck /dev/sda , and when I do a reboot I get a Error 21.
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sdb3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
