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 was attempting to install AMANDA to back up my files. I usually just tar them in small chunks but I wanted to do a quick global. I shut down the machine after installing all of the necessary libs and figured I would set up amanda later. The next time I booted it claimed No OS Installed. No Lilo, nada. I finally got Lilo back up from the install CD rescue tool and tried to boot again and now I get a series of errors looking like this, even booting to failsafe:
and thus my system is rendered almost as useless as a windoze box. I have tried installing MDK as an upgrade to see if that corrects it to no avail. I have toyed with the idea of fsck'ing it but lack experience in that area. If needs be I can put a minimal install on a clean drive I have laying around in order to have all the utils necessary to fix this.
Thanks in advance. If anyone can make this go, you guys can.
originally it was a dual boot but i wiped the Windoze partition recently because it was just wasting disk space. Now Linux is to only OS on the system, although it still offers windows in the LILO menu, it doesn't really exist. Just been to lazy to take it out as an option. I will be adding slack 10 on the old windoze drive soon and will edit that then.
