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'm sure this has probably been addressed before, so someone can hopefully help me out.
I have been running WinXP Home for a while now on my 120GB hard drive. I have recently decided to dive into the world that is Linux, and I downloaded Redhat 7.3 last night.
I would like to install RH 7.3 on my second hard drive, a 12.7GB Maxtor. My wish is to of course be able to dual boot and decide at startup which I want to use.
Everytime I go to install Linux from the CDs I burned, I chicken out at the disk partition options screen. I don't want to hose up my WinXP system, because I've got WAY too much stuff to lose on there. Can someone give me some guidance?
Yes, this has been done by many (if not most people) on this forum. Consequently there are many, many threads which can be searched for this precise topic. Use the search facility like a local google engine. Oh, and use http://www.google.com/linux too.
Okay I think I'm in trouble now. I'm posting here from my RH 7.3 system (obviously the install went ok), but at startup I wasn't given the option to select WinXP. I installed the lilo at the MBR as instructed. Can someone help me out please?
run lilo and make sure you get o/p like.
I assumed you have winxp in /dev/hda -- primary master. If it does not work, delete the newly added lines and run lilo again so that you have atleast linux. man lilo.conf gives a lot of details on all these.
I am a Corpsman. I went straight from Boot to corps school (both in Great Mistakes), then to Field Med School (with the marines in Camp Legune, NC) and then onto Pharmacy Tech school (C School in Portsmouth, VA) and did some OJT during 3 months before class up at Scott's Center Pharmacy in Portsmouth, and finally to here, where I've been for ~2.5 years. I have about a year left in the Navy, then I gotta decide whether to re-up (Decent SRB for Pharmacy Techs) for 3 years and go somewhere cool overseas, or get out and live the Civilian life
VA is cool up here. I didn't care for Norfolk. Too much traffic and too many squids. I've been in since '93 and I'm a CTO1. I've got about 16 months left in. Even with an SRB they can't match what I'd make on the outside.
