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 am a linux newbie, and just finished installing Fedora on the same Hard Disk as my Win2k installation. I chose to install GRUB to the /boot partition (as opposed to the MBR) since it was recommended by the installer. However, when booting, I do NOT see a GRUB menu, and the system boots directly to Win2k ! I have to use a Fedora Boot Disk to boot into linux. Here's my /boot/grub/grub.conf file:
# 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 (hd0,2)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda4
# initrd /initrd-version.img
password --md5 $1$mMhPDlt7$3ek2n6LuCGlf2APORBmN./
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
Please note that the boot partition is mounted to /dev/hda3, the / partition is mounted to /dev/hda4, and the Win2K (DOS) partition is mounted to /dev/hda1. Any help would be much appreciated.
try using a third party boot loader like boot magic.
else install grub on the mbr by booting from the first cdrom and type
chroot #/mnt/sysimage at the prompt and then
#/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda .
