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'm a relative newcomer to Linux hence the trouble. I have a dual boot system with XandrOS / Windows XP running. For some reason, my winlogon.exe file is corrupt and so cannot boot to Windows. I have a backup of the file in the relevant directory, but since I have no write permissions to the Windows partition I cannot rename winlogon and replace the corrupt with the backup. Is there a fairly secure method to do so in XandrOS? I would perform a repair install of Windows, but my disc is in my laptop bag at work so i'm SOL today!
AFAIK, it's still limited writing though. I don't think you can create files, yet.
The kernel driver can create files and all that shizzle now

Yeah true but I've heard a lot of reports that the userspace tools are writing to disk at like 300-600KB/s. I'd rather lose some functionality and gain some speed as all the basic stuff is done. Just done use passworded directories etc.
