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.

Apologies for even asking but I'm having a bad moment! Upgraded Fedora Core 3 to 4 yesterday and applied suggested changes to bootloader, unfortunately my grub screen comes up but when I try and boot windoze XP all I get is a menu option "other hd0,0
chainloader +1" but it then hangs.
XP is on my first hard-drive, fedora is on the second, heres my grub.conf
How can I get back into XP again? (which I sadly have to!)
All help gratefully received.
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd1,2)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb3
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
no problem at all...
1. but the xp installation cd and run repair.........but then u wont be able to access fedora...u will have to reinstall grub....put the first cd of the distribution and u will be done..........
2. put the first cd and when being asked for a boot laoder info.....check if its showing any other os info.....if yes...........reinstall the boot loader and skip installaion....
3. find out the exact locationf othe xp boot image and edit grub appropriately.........
