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.

On one of my play machines, I upgraded FC5 to FC6. Problem is, grub doesn't seem to find grub.conf.
Anaconda has updated grub.conf, and replaced the previous 2 linux kernels (ie the old fc5 installations) with the new fc5, and left the windows option, but on booting, simply goes to the the grub command line.
Setup is dual disk with windows on one and fedora on the other and all worked fine.
Stange thing is, if I type the grun.conf command into the command line (root (hd0,0) then kernel /vmlinuz... then initrd /initrd...), it boots just fine. When I did the initial upgrade I didn't change the boot order to the linux disk first, but tried reinstalling with this as the boot disk and it apparently re-wrote grub, but still doesn't work.
Nothing much to lose if I reinstall from scratch, but I'd prefer not to.
Can't find anything usefull on the web, and to me, grub.conf looks fine (very much the same as other grub.confs I have except for the kernel/initrd versions. I've tried trying hd1, etc, but to no avail. Grub doesn't seem to report an error.
Any thoughts welcome (preferably definitive, because trust me, it's a pain booting up by entering grub commands manually or waiting for rescue to load - lol)
