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've read in this forum that there are some troubles while trying to install Linux onto WinXP. But I can't find that thread. The WinXP was to have some speciall booter that, when replaced by Linux booter, it's not working right.
Someone said that the only way is to use a diskette to boot Linux, but the other person gave hope that it's possible to fix it somehow. Please help me.
At this time I have Linux on my PC, but using Wine I destroyed Program Files on Win C drive Gadu-Gadu, and having to install myself a new Windows, I chose WinXP.
So I can use only WinXP now, until I get a clue, how to make Linux and WinXP coexist.
I reinstalled Mandrake yesterday onto my WinXP. And it works.
I think that someone who had discouraged me, had the WinXP with NTFS. I have only win32 for Windows, so probably that's the reason why everything's fine in my computer.
