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.

Issue 1: dual booting
I modified lilo.conf to allow Win2k to boot upon entering 'win' at the lilo prompt, however, 50% of the time Win2k fails to load. The loading bar stops at the 'C' in 'Corporation' while the bar above continues to flow accross the screen. I can leave the room for 10 minutes and come back to no change. When hitting reset and attempting to load Win2k again, it loads without a problem. This happends every time. I've yet to see Win2k load twice in a row or fail to load twice in a row.
Issue 2: SiS900 module
This is what I get when I try to install the sis900 module...
Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.2.19pre17/modules.dep
/lib/modules/2.2.19pre17/net/sis900.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
Hint: this error can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
