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 already have Ubuntu on my drive, I just installed windows on the free space left over. (and windows does only read the amount of space i gave it-not the whole drive as its C drive). I need to install a boot-manager to be able to get to both. The BIOS comes on, then straight to windows...
You're in the wrong spot - you need the next block - "Using the Desktop/LiveCD and Overwriting the Windows bootloader"
(BTW, that command is "find " - you needed a space after it. But don't do that, use the one I just suggested).
first off it looks like spacing between commands. find /boot/grub/stage1
Lets assume you have 1 Hard drive, labeled hda. To my understanding Ubuntu was first installed and should be on hda1; so do this
grub> root (hd0,0)
It should tell you what type of filesystem it is, ext3.
to install grub,
grub> setup (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)
to install grub to whole hard drive- boot menu should include windows, so don't worry.
Now restart and watch the screen, menu should come up and the rest is history.
