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 installed Windows XP Pro sp2 first, then acronis Os Selector 8. It worked fine, so I then installed Slackware 10. But Acronis Os Selector is saying my Linux partition is "Locked". I can't boot from it
Originally posted by jcspray You should consult the Acronis documentation to find out what they mean by "Locked": this is not a common term in bootloaders.
You might consider switching to a bootloader such as grub, which is likely to work more seamlessly with linux (as well as still working with windows, of course)
Yea I tried that.. upon choosing to boot windows it was saying it couldn't find some system file (forgot the exact name) located in \Windows\System32\whatever... So then I pretty much got really frustrated :P
