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.

well, what i could notice here is that the DOS filesystem is set to be searched at (hd0,0) and that's the first hdisk mbr, and i thing DOS is actually located in (hd0,1) first data part of the first HD.. but now you say that you cant even boot linux, what you can do is at the grub screen, at the command prompt (i dont remember the command to get there) you type:
and that should get you to boot windows... i think that the commands are correct, as soon as i reboot my system i will re-check, and post any corrections here, but what you should do is change the grub.conf or lilo.conf under
.... please anyone let me know if im wrong... well thankz... hope it helps
