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.

Ive just installed Red Hat 7.3 on my harddrive # 2, but after the installation, i couldn't boot my Windows 2k anymore.
I started using grub, but the I read that if I wanted to boot Windows I had to use Lilo, så I reinstalled the entire Linux og used Lilo instead.
I updated Red Hat, online so now i can chose between three in the lilo bootmenu.
the lilo.conf file looks like this:
It looks like hda1 is the windows2000 partition. Try removing this line from /etc/lilo.conf: table=/dev/hda. Then run /sbin/lilo.
If you are in x windows, you can paste text by placing the mouse pointer at the start of the text you want to copy then clicking the left mouse button and then drag it over the text and release the mouse button at the end of the text. The text will be highlighted.
To paste the text, move the mouse pointer to where you want to paste it and click the left mouse button and then the middle mouse button. The text will be copied there.
