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.

This weekend I installed FC5 along side Windows XP. The problem I am having is that I can no longer boot into XP now. When it boots up it goes straight into FC5 with no choice to boot into XP. This this something with FC5 or did I do something wrong on installation? Thanks for any help.
It sounds like your boot loader was not installed. I believe that you can boot off of the Fedora CD and opt to repair the system, there you can reinstall the Grub or Lilo boot loader. I haven't installed Fedora 5 yet, but I imagine that there must be something similar to what I just wrote.
All that happened is the linux bootloader didn't include an entry for Windows when it was installed. As it's Fedora, I'm assuming that your bootloader is Grub - if you could post your complete /boot/grub/grub.conf file here, and we'll see if we can help you get it straightened out
I feel pretty stupid now. I got an idea and tried it. It seems that it is just that the screen to select the OS to boot into is going too fast so it is not noticable. It looks like it is going right into Fedora, but if I hit a key before it does I get the screen to select an OS. Thank you anyway.
