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 just added a new hard drive and made it master. I can't boot into RH 9 anymore and I get the kernel panic: no init message. I am wondering if I can edit the boot disk and if so what would the staement be. I was booting off the disk not Grub or Lilo.
Thanks but I needed to put Windows98 and XP back on the new drive and Win98 needs to be C:, etc. Also I wanted to dedicate the old drive to RH9.
Been setting up the bootloaders, twice Grub crapped out on me and left me re-installing and this last time XP glitched. Will try again but I wish there was a way to back up the MBR in case the bootloader dumps again.
Thanks for the reply Michael. Tried booting Rescue using the disc but it didn't see any of the partitions. I then went a little further and started to re-install, when it checked for previous installations it said it saw the install but it wasn't initiallized and did I want to continue and lose all data.
