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.

To my help I used PartitionMagic 8 (PM) under Windows (define the changes in Windows and then reboot to make them). It did delete the DOS-partition and the both Linux-partitions but when it was going to move the XP-partition something went corrupt and the whole partition went useless and I only read it as RAW. I reinstalled Linux on the free space I had hoping to fix it (as I've done before) but nope.
I've gotten a CD with PEbuilder (which boot winxp from a CD) and was thinking about doing the whole xp-partition to a ghost-image but Ghost on the CD wouldn't work at all (possible because it couldn't decide which filesystem the C:\ drive had).
What I need now is help with some program for either Windows or Linux which can read RAW-Partitions. I don't want to format the harddrive before I've gotten some really important files that I stored on it.
If someone know how to help me with dd please write me a msg on ICQ. I'm online most of the day.
