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 onced tryed to dual boot before when I had red hat and I lost comeplete access in the end. Windows boot desktop couldn't even find it. This was with the boot loader with red hat. I am wondering how do I dual boot with Windows 2000 and slackware. I would like to leave the Windows boot loader if all possible is there an option to do this in the installation?
Can I make a boot disk before the installation. My laptop has it so I would have to switch from cd-rom to floppy but I don't think there is a safe way to pull it out well installing. Can I make a boot disk before?
I haven't done it, but, in other bootloader searches, I have come across many pages that explain now to add Linux to NTLoader. I've neevr done it, as it seemed that it'd be easier and quicker to access the Linux (or *BSD...) loader if something went wrong. Good luck.
