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.

ok so i have windows vista. i installed suse into a different partition,in drive C: ; now whenever i start windows i get the blue screen of death. so now i can boot into suse, but not windows. I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO FORMAT MY HARD DRIVE(HD) USING LINUX? or someone tell me of a boot CD that is similar to windows, to format the drive...
1) i tried to boot with windows vista cd, but right before it get to the recovery council, the blue scree of death appears!
2) i used windows xp to boot up, again right before the recovery screen, the blue screen appears, not letting continue; because of errors.
3) i tried the "Ultimate BootCD" and it sucks. Also,Hiren's BootCD 9.1 i dont know how to use it. i did tryed both for many hours.
I need a windows like boot cd in order to format, and NO i dont have a floppy drive.
SOMEHOW I HAVE TO FORMAT MY C: DRIVE USING SUSE AND I HAVE TRIED LOOKING FOR A WAY AND I DONT KNOW HOW. AND WORST, I'M A COMPUTER SCIENCE MAJOR!!!
well right now im trying to delete some partition, but there are so many, sda, sad1,sda2,sda3,sdb... but i did delet many more, like C: for example...,, cuz i was also trying to delete the old suse intallation
in my windows vista i had C:, which is now cousin problem.
D: for my recovery system
and E: which i put all my document and important information before installing suse ... just in case this would happen
if nothing else i'll buy a extrnal hd and transfer all of E: thing and reinstall windows, then try to install suse again...
