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.

how can I see my hard disk 1 drives the one that I installed windows on in linux redhat 9.0.
I have two hard disks one windows on and the other one linux but cant see the drives in linux and wise versa
Where are the drives connected? Primary Master, Secondary Slave...
Linux refers to drives like this: hda=Primary Master, hdb=Primary Slave, hdc=Secondary Master...and so on. A partition is specified by a number. hda1 would be the first partition on hda.
You will have to mount the Windows drives to see them in linux, using the mount command in a terminal/command-line:
mount -t vfat /dev/<disk-name-here> /any/folder/here
This mounts FAT32, for NTFS:
mount -t ntfs /dev/<disk-name-here> /any/folder/here -o ro
<disk-name-here> is usually a partition, such as hda1.
To see the Linux partitions from Windows, use the Explore2fs program (assuming the partition is formatted in ext2/ext3).
