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 had winxp, i installed first mandrake 10(hda5,lilo as bootloader) and then fedora core 2(hda6,grub) with hda7 as common /home partition.Mandrake didn't boot anymore so i put initrd and kernel.img from /boot folder from Mandrake partition into the boot folder of Fedora and updated the grub.conf ao everything went ok:i could boot both fedora and mandrake.Then i set in the grub .conf the win os as default but now always lilo starts and i cannot boot fedora anymore,only win and mandrake.How can i remove lilo or configure it to also boot fedora?Where is its conf file?
well mate i had similar problem. infact you are able to boot i was not!!! what happened was on my one is i did made a 7 gig of partition for linux and i was trying to make a dual boot with winxp pro. everything went very well and as well as booting but then i did not like the madrakes boot loader and i thought only way to remove this would be booting in windows and deleting the partition.... guest what then.... i did delete the partition and then i try to re boot but however this time i could not even boot on to any OS !! ! ! !! !
can you Imagen how do i feel. i did not have any 2nd PC for me to boot it on that that as a slave and try to back up the data but for get it.. i had to do a hard format which means i had to erase everything. don't ask me about back ups because they did not work either. i have lost about 50GB of data in 45 mins....
