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.

hi ive decided to take the bull by the horns and install suse 6.3 on my pc i know its an older distro but i got it with a big install manual to hold my hand in casse i get stuck.
ive got windows on my main pc but ive got a spare hdd would it be possible to install suse on the 2nd hdd which will be slaved to the windows hdd i dont want thehassle of switching hdds all the time and eventually id like to get shut of windows alltoghther.
thanks smartcat i`m a total noob and quite hard work will the manual for 6.2 be roughly the same for 9.0 as this is my first step into linux and i really want to get to grips with linux as what i`ve read so far its got me hooked.
Or, do it the other way: Make Linux the first drive and install that way (with Windows on the second drive). Nothing in Win32 gets altered that way (MBR intact). SUSE will likely ask if you wanna include the Win in the boot options. If it gives you trouble, which it likely won't, come here for help. At worst, you can unplug the drive with Linux on it and put the Windows drive back on the master spot.
