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.

Hi there i'm a relative newbie and have been playing around with mandrake before. I thought i would reinstall it on a seperate drive after a year. FOr some reason, the computer doesnt boot after the install (which completes with no errors) .... intially i got LI 01 01 etc.... but found that it was because the IDE channel for the HD on which the linux partition was installed was disabled (silly me) having changed it to autodetect the HD, the system now gives an error saying "error loading operating system"....
i have purchased a DVD-RW in between the two installations and the IDE configuration is as follows:
Primary : Master : 30Gb HD with WinXP
Secondary : Master: DVD-RW
Slave: 20 Gb HD on which Linux is installed
Could it be the configuration of theses drives? I need to have the two DVD drives on different channels as windows (whispers) XP says its faster when copying discs on-th-fly..... does any one have any ideas? I dont have "grub" but i'm told its less happy dual booting into XP so i havent tried.
By the way, i selected the "save to MBR" option as everyone suggests in the forum.....
ANy help would be greatly appreciated.... i'm itching for linux.....
