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 have a problem. I can boot only into linux after I upgraded my kernel. Windows doesn't work.
I'm using the Gurb boot loader.
Here's the gurb.cfg file
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd1,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Linux Fedora Core 2 (2.6.7-1.494.2.2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.7-1.494.2.2 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Linux Fedora Core 2 (2.6.5-1.358)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Windows Xp
And here's what it says when I try to boot into windwos
Originally posted by jomen of course - after you edited you /etc/grub.conf to be correct now (I can just assume it is correct, because I do not use grub and thus am not able to verivy if it is) you need to run:
to commit the changes you made to the disk (to update the boot-loader)
The same witht lilo - another boot-loader - after changing the configuration you have to commit the changes by issuing: lilo -v
only then the changes take effect
I've done it. It didn't help. I get thesame effect.
is you windows drive a slave?
Nope. my windows drive is master.
But my linux drive (also containing /boot) is a slave.
I don't know if it helps but I didn't say my distro yet. It's Fedora core2
