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.

What filesystem do you use? i use ext3 and still haven't found concrete info on how to partition it safely, which sucks cause i need more space :S
As for reinstalling windows, you just need to create the partition, then boot from the windows CD, after that GRUB will be obliterated from the MBR and you will need a Linux recovery CD (most distros have one) and you have to reinstall GRUB
ok so wit ma last post i was a bit vauge with wat i really wanted so im just gonna come out and say it.
im over stuffing around wit linux and i wanna go bak to windows. i know it may agonise some of u to hear this, but its my choice and i would appreciate any help that may be offered. however i would not appreciate any critisism. thank u and please assist me.
You pay for Windows. They will be more than happy to assist you, or even install it for you if you ask them to. You pay, you have the right to ask for what you want.
Now if you have specific questions, that they can't answer, and that we could answer, don't hesitate to ask (although they should give you top support). You would probably better ask on a windows forum but...
If you've finished "stuffing around" with linux and want to go back to windows then set your bios to boot from CD, put the windows CD in and let it boot, when you get to the part where you choose your partitions, delete them all, create a windows partition, let it format it, reinstall windows, have a nice day.
