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.

Sorry to ask this q for about 1000th time but i haven't seen any tuts regarding XP being on a SM instead of a PM
I'm trying to dual boot mandrake and winXP with Grub and mandrake works fine, but i have a problem witn XP.
Primary master: 120 GB, Mandrake Linux, grub is installed on MBR
primary slave: none
secondary master: 10 GB WinXP, NTFS, bootloader not configured to dualboot
secondary slave: CDRW
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
title Pingo Linux (2.4.20-20.9)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.9 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
title Windows XP
#original XP lines from the original config, do not work
# rootnoverify (hd1,0)
# chainloader +1
Now the weird thing... When i try to run windows, this is displayed and the windows does not boot:
[something about the file system not being correct or recognized], partition type 0x7.
yes, i recently added that 120 gig drive and installed linux on it, made it a primary master and all. I changed the jumpers and all too, so the system is working. WinXP works if i change it's disk to primary boot disk (while still being SM) in BIOS, it just doesn't start GRUB. So, the windows system is accesible, but won't start from bootloader. U know what i mean right?
