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.

Started innocently enough with me partitioning a drive to make space so I could test win7starter. I reboot to finalize the partition and I get the grub rescue error. I tried the super grub2 disk thing to no effect. I say screw it and decide to start fresh.
I get out my old restore disks for win 7 go through the motions and I still get the grub rescue error.
So then I get parted magic on unetbootin and completely format the lappy's hard drive in a single ntfs drive and I reboot and I still get the grub rescue error.
I am getting a copy of win7 retail to put on BUT I still need to fix the grub issue. Anyone know what to do? Z/Z
I am installing win 7 by usb because I can't burn the iso from my netbook and I don't have any burn dvds so I have no idea how to access the windows command prompt since the grub error is blocking me. Z/Z
