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.

I just did an upgrade install from Redhat 9 to Fedora Core 1. I installed the GRUB loader, when I boot up, I get a screen that simply says "GRUB" with a blinking cursor and that is it. I cant goto Linux or Windows unless I put in the boot diskette, which only brings me to Linux. Please tell me my "non Linux" information isn't gone!!!
# 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 (hd1,4)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb6
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
I did a fresh reinstall, specifically telling it not to install any bootloader of any kind, but I still get the screen that says "GRUB" with a cursor and that's it. I cant type anyting else and nothing else happens now matter how long I wait. I don't know of any other conceivable way to get back to my windows environment. I've read the above links, and I've read countless other links on GRUB and the grub.conf file but nothing seems to be working at this point. I really need to know if my windows partitions are gone as that's 60gigs of data gone. I'm really trying to help myself, but I've been at this since 10pm and I thought it was supposed to be quite simple
