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 cannot boot into my windows partition because it says unexecutable format or something like that and I cannot boot into linux because it keeps giving me a parition error. On top of all that the screen is all screwed up for some stupid reaosn. This is really pissing me off.
I manually installed grub and had no errors as well.
Please help :'( I got it working on my laptop but for some reason even typing it the same way minus the drive numbers it refuses to work on my desktop. I have a Radeon 9800 Pro if that helps with the grpahicical screw ups. Oh and this is about my 100th attempt to get it working on my desktop.
Your grub file looks just fine to me...so can you post the exact error messages you are getting when trying to boot either OS? I don't really know jack about windows, but the only thing I can think of to keep linux from booting is if you don't have ext3 filesystem built in to your kernel (not a module).
