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 just done my first linux install with suse 10.0 and for some reason whenever i try to go to windows through the bootloader i get a black screen with just the words chainloader (hd1,0)+1. I have gone into my /etc folder and found my grub.conf file, but when i run "cat /etc/grub.conf" or even "kate /etc/grub.conf" all i get is this "setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0,1) (hd0,1)
setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0) (hd0,1)
What do I need to do to boot into windows from the grub bootloader?
p.s. I am able to use the F8 boot menu to load up windows by selecting the drive it is on and it runs fine, so i know i didn't accidentally delete windows during my install.
I finally got it figured out. I had to change the windows tag in menu.lst to this.
title Windows XP
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
and finally it's working, and my grub bootloader is successfully loading windows and suse.
I'm extremely happy and would like to than everyone here and at the forums on www.glug.us
thank you so much victorh and everyone else that helped me in this thread.
