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 had ubuntu installed, removed it, then installed fedora(it said fedora was fully installed and rebooted the computer), and it's running alongside XP... well, supposed to be. After the diagnostic screen on startup, it goes straight to booting to Xp, and doesn't give me an option for switching over to fedora or xp like ubuntu/xp combination did.
anything i can do, probably in bios or reinstalling that would make this happen? I just spent an hour installing fedora and i really wanna play with it.
Yes, it did and it said it installed grub.
No, the partition of windows is still on there, it's been the same partition, and i have no plans on removing it, i put too much time into it.
HOWEVER i did reinstall ubuntu this morning as well as had it alongside fedora. Grub would load up, but wouldn't let me switch between operating systems, so it booted into a lot of text on the screen, like Terminal, leading me to log in as root and enter the system password on fedora... but after that, it shows up asking for commands... from my experience operating systems should just start up.... the system doesn't start up.
So, my hypothesis is that since it wasn't using fedora's grub, it was using ubuntu's grub - i have no idea as to whether or not they're the same.
