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.

Parition magic let's me do it like that, but I don't want to apply it until I know if its going to mess anything up. Before, I just had that top NTFS, and the bottom Extended with only one NTFS in it. But I will add those two linux paritions if its safe.
So far, it seems that things get done a bit faster, but its still too soon to tell yet. I've only had it installed for about a week, it seems to be a bit zippier. The filesystem makes in no time (under a second). So now I have a filesystem that my Windows definitely won't understand!
veritas, if you're using a kernel newer than 2.6.6, you should have very little to worry about writing from linux to your ntfs as well.
Distribution: Ubuntu Server, Slackware, Red Hat 6.1

Wasn't really gunna use the ntfs with linux anyways. I just had that as a second hard drive under windows XP for organization purposes and I didnt want the linux paritions to conflict with it under XP. But i barely used it, so I just wanted to split it up and install slackware again. All is well now, I am just losing some hair over getting hardware acceleration working with my ATI PCI card...
love your sig. I wish I could help. Mine should be #rain | less
Have you posted a thread about your card? Which model is it? I have an ATI and have been through a lot of reading because its a video capture card with no tv. Not docs around on how to get it working. But, I have reada lot of crap about ATI cards.
