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.

After installing redhat 9, GRUB loads, but it does not seem to recognize ANY partition? My goal was to create a winxp/redhat 9 dual boot system on my laptop, but now all that happens is GRUB loads and I am completely lost as to how to unhide them and/or register the two partitions with GRUB. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
if you type
and then <tab>, grub should give you a list of available partitions as it seeks to autocomplete your command.
grub has useful functionality, but you'll need to learn about it, I recommend Daniel Robbin's piece on grub, out there in ibm pdf format if you look under google. It's easy reading htoug hi t wil take 20 mins or so.
The title of your post, "fixing" is alot to ask out of grub, but I supppose that's why I read it, it stuck out. IT will certainly "see" partitions if given half the chance.
#grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
#NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-6)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
that might be two <tabs> in quick succession that are needed, bash style.
if you type "help" you'll get a list of poss commands. there's one there for tellign grub to use a certain conf. file as long as you know it's path and name.
grub paths are slightly different
