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.

ok, i have both of my windows xp partitions mounted now, but i need to bring HAL.DLL from one to the other. I used -w as one of the extensions for mount so that it would b read/write mounted, but it wont let me copy past hal.dll from one partition to another. :-P
thank you all SOOO much for all the help, but sorry, i dont have the windows install disk, its at a freinds and he wont b back for a while... o well, ill try messing around for a bit, if i cant figure it out, ill come back to the boards. thanx again
if you want write support you have to compile the module from the kernel source yourself, and the write support from ntfs is still experimental so its not totally safe.
This is OT but if all u need is the hal.dll file put back into your %systemroot%\system32, copy the hal.dll file to a floppy then boot with xp cd, get in recovery console and do it there. If that doesn't fix your problem boot with winxp cd again then use system repair(press enter to select the option to install, then it'll ask you if you want to repair), it'll redetect all your hardware and reinstall system files, while keeping your original configuration.
