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.

-the first two WD's (1 & 2) and the last two WD's (3 & 4) are on seperate RAID0 partitions
- 80GB SEAGATE IDE
-i installed windows on the first two drives (i.e. the first RAID0), and it seemed to install the bootloader on the MBR of the Seagate IDE drive
-i installed linux on the second two drives (i.e the second RAID0), and this overwrote the MBR on the Seagate IDE drive.
Linux boots fine, windows does not
this is NOT a software raid setup so my first RAID0 is recognized as "sda" with windows on "sda1", while the second RAID0 is recognized as "sdb" with linux on "sdb2", while swap is "sdb1"
this works for LINUX in lilo.conf
LILO can have trouble booting Windows when it is on the MBR. Grub is a much better option. However, if LILO is giving you grief on bootup and putting it on the /root sector of the hard-drive doesn't work, you can always try NT Loader; Google returns a bunch of results on setting that up.
`fdisk /mbr` in Windows (startup disk) will reset the MBR to get back into Windows, if needed.
