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.

Linux seems to be working fine. Steep learning curve for me.
I wanted to dual boot my WinXP install. I resized the drive, everything seemed to go correctly. Now when I try to boot into WinXP, I get:
root noverify (hd0,0)
System has only one hard drive. I saw other references to remapping the drive order in GRUB, I tried that also, but no joy.
I can mount and view the NTFS partition.
Suggestions? I've been on the net all morning looking around and it seems that XP wants to be the first partition on the first drive (from what I can find, it is). Not sure what else to do from here.
# 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 (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
