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 got a laptop with a 500GB hard drive installed with a clean copy of Win 7. I'm trying to shrink the windows volume from windows using Disk management and it's given me 230GB. There's less than 15 gig being used by the win 7 install. I want to dual boot but not if it's gonna cost me half the disk! I followed suggestions from here: http://skimfeed.com/blog/windows-7-f...ize-shrinking/ which freed up all of 280MB. Can anyone suggest how I can get more shrinkage out of win 7?
Ditto, but it can cause Windows to run a deep check on the filesystem next time it starts up. Just be patient - one of mine took 45 minutes booting Win after the change. And that was only a part used 600 Gig disk (laptop).
Use Windows to create a recover image after it has done its work, then use gparted.
As an aside, Linux will install quite nicely to an extended partition. On my Win7 box, Windows occupied four primary partitions (in my opinion, just because it could), so I put Linux on an extended partition.
