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've just installed Fedora on a Dell box with three hard drives. There are three versions of Windows installed on the the first two disks before installing Fedora on an empty unformated third drive.
All the disks showed up ok during the install and I used the automatic disk partition option and unchecked the Windows disks as install options and selected to leave all existing partitions alone.
It defaulted to GRUB.
After the install conpleted and a reboot it just sayes:
"GRUB Hard Disk Error"
I used the boot disk created during the install and got Fedora started and this is what the /boot/grub/grub.conf looks like:
# 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 (hd2,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hde2
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi rhgb initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
title Windows options
Any ideas how to get the GRUB to start like it's supposed to with the option to choose which OS to start?
