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 get this on boot up, then the machine hangs: error 15 right after it says grub.
Any hard drive additions/changes lately? I actually saw a grub 15 this weekend when I added a SATA drive to an existing server - turned out my bios was set to boot scsi's before ide's (primary drivers are ide). Just a thought,
I got this error ( code 15 ) in similar circumstances when I already knew something was wrong, (and also codes 17 and 13 when I did things like disconnecting disks etc.) Is there a simple accessible guide to GRUB online which lists these error codes?
As everybody has said that error is usually given when you make a change on your hard disk configuration. It can be solved either (or both) changing the /boot/grub/menu.lst configuration file and setting some commands on the grub shell (check #man grub) or if your distro has an utility like slackware's grubconfig you can use it to as an easier way fo solving your problem.
