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.

My system has XP installed on SATA RAID disks using the Asus P4P800's ICH5R chipset (and software RAID implementation). It is (at present) not directly accessible from my FC4 installation which is on a separate HDD. I can see (read/write) all contents of the FC4 HDD from XP.
Dual booting doesn't seem to work, so I have to boot FC4 from a grub floppy.
I have tried all the usual methods. Using bootpart I can see all partitions correctly and can install the bootpart .bin file under XP without trouble. Only problem is that it won't boot - when I select the Linux bootloader entry from the bootpart menu it just returns me to the menu.
D:\Archives\Windows Archives\WinXP\bootpa25>bootpart list
Add partition in the Windows NT/2000/XP Multi-boot loader
List entry in BOOT.INI
0 : multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
By runnning "bootpart REMOVE <number>"
where number is an entry number, you can remove the entry from C:\BOOT.INI
