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 tried booting with redhat installation cd, but it wont do anything. is there a command that i can type on the grub prompt that will allow me to boot xp? all i want to do is load xp, finish deleting redhat then re-install it on drive B as it once was
Sounds like your bios is set to boot from hard drive first. Hit <del> <f12> or whatever it is you need to on bootup and make sure CD-ROM is above hard drive in the boot list. Then you should be able to boot from CD,
