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 have installed Windows XP on my 80gb HD using 40gb and then i partitioned my HD so i had 20gbs for Linux RH 9.0. Now i have installed RH 9.0 with Grub bootloader i cant boot back into my XP partition. But when i use a partition tool like Partition Magic i can see my XP partition and my Linux partition.
Please could some help me add XP to the Grub bootloader.
As far as RH9 being full of bugs, I would have to disagree. I have two systems running RH8 and three systems running RH9. I have been running RH9 for a couple months or so, and have not seen any bugs yet.
red hat 9 is a perfectly good and stable distro with access to all the latest software, the only way it would be glitchy is if someone did an upgrade to it - but that is likely to happen with any distro. A clean install should run great.
if you use nero, then it is file-burn image - then just browse to the image and you are done. If you use the nero wizard, it is cd, create new, other cd format, iso or image and then browse to it and burn. Use a good quality cd-r.
BTW, has this been double posted? I could have sworn I responded to a thread that was the same title.
Location: Right now I think I am being Compiled directly to /dev/null... Atleast I am running on a i386, buys me sometime ;)
Distribution: Slack, RH
well it's shocking to me also, I am full faith in RH and have been running them since 6.1... But one two clean installs of 9 I have had shutdowns and lockups running Mozzilla... if anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them.
