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.

Warning: This is a borderline linux/grub/winblows 2K question - if it is going to offend you look away now.
On /dev/hda RH 7.3 & M$ WXP are installed - both boot fine using grub.
On /dev/hdc M$ W2K is installed - I have trouble booting to it.
From both WXP & RH, I can see hdc and write to it when it is installed - it is in the modular bay which at times holds a floppy, cd-rw, or battery. For RH, I have a grub choice for linux with cd-rw vs. hdc.
The problem is when I boot to W2K on hdc, I cannot login to windows. It starts to login, saying it is loading settings, but before the desktop or anything appears, it says saving settings and boots me off. I have messed around with the grub map command, but to no avail. If I change the current mapping, it will not even boot W2K.
Any ideas? The w2k partition is sort of a legacy thing. Unfortunately, there are some applications on it that I want and cannot reinstall without paying lots oh $.
