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.

kernel /boot/vmlinuz ......then the rest of the stuff (see my tut.....if /boot is a separate partition you remove /boot from the stanza but a lot of newies have /boot as a sub-folder to /......)
initrd /boot/initrd.img (Or /initrd.img)
extra comments....each line starts with a command
if any future probs post each line pls
(2) your distro may of course not have symbolic links to vmlinuz or initrd.img so you may have to replace them with the full title but if you glance at my trouble-shooter you can do the kernel (and press tab) etc for each line...except title which is not to be used in the command line....to see whats wat.
3) hdd means FC must be on slave jumper controller 2 if that is wrong pls tell us what is wat.
I removed mepis off of the primary drive and replaced it with Fedora. I then installed mepis on the secondary slave drive and edited Grub using mepis' bootloader to include Fedora, and voila, it worked!
This was the impatient, time consuming way but the end result was worth it. I'm able to use Fedora 5 with Gnome desktop and Mepis with a KDE desktop while keeping Windows XP for familial harmony.
Fedora recognized my HP vs15x monitor and video card out of the box. I'm going to use the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and replace the one in Mepis, which hangs up periodically.
