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.

hi, does anyone here run Suse 10 (x86_64) alongside FC4 (x86_64) because i am trying to do this, but im having a few problems, i have suse 10 running fine, on my /dev/sda3 partition, also i have WinXP on /dev/sda1, grub boots those two fine, i have installed FC4 on /dev/sda7, grub picks it up, but cannot boot it, it says file not found when i try, can anybody suggest a way out of this problem? (kernel parameters, etc...)
Post your grub.conf(or menu.lst) file from suse here. Also post the contents of /boot directory of fedora. This is because, grub must be done the exact filename and location to be able to boot the distro. In order to see the contents of /boot of Fedora, you may have to mount the partition. Since I believe Fedora makes ext3 partitions, you can make a temporary directory in /mnt and then mount fedora's partition like this
mount -t ext3 -o ro /dev/sda7 /mnt/tmp
ls -l /mnt/tmp/boot
Note down the filename precisely. Post your grub and I (or somebody else) will help you boot fedora.
I am assuming you only have one hard drive in your PC, which means your grub entry for FC4 points to a different hard drive (which according to my assumption, does not exist). Hence you can try and change that entry to the following and try to boot it.
***Notice the difference (hd0,6) from the previous entry***. I would also recommend that you read up on grub and how it identifies devices. That way you would almost always figure out how to boot if grub doesn't play nice.
