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 have a 10 GB hard disk- 6.5 GB for windows and rest for linux. I have been getting a lot of errors (like getting a blue screen) on windows especially when I connect to the internet on windows. And recently I 've got a prob with windows registry. So I have decided to format the windows partition- 6.5 GB.
I have already copied some imprtant files I would require to the linux partition so that after I format and install windows, I could copy the files back to the windows partition.
My query is- Will there be any problem after I format the windows partition and reinstall windows because I have linux on the other partition? Will there be any problem with the GRUB lilo loader?
Will formatting windows partition and reinstalling linux affect linux in any way ?
Well i use mdk 9.1 and i have done this in order to reinstall boot loader:
boot with mdk's cd 1, press F1 and type RESCE, then select 'reinstall boot loader' option and restart.
I don't know which distro you have, but that procedure had worked for me, Hope this helps
