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.

Having a bit of a problem getting grub to work again. I moved, as opposed to copied, /boot/grub/menu.lst to my desktop on my debian system to save it. Now supergrub is not able to find the menu.lst and I do not have access to my debian drive, which is where everything is. So, how do I go about restoring grub then? I have both knoppix and the supergurb at hand.
I'm on my wifes system atm. give me about 10 mins to put my girl to bed and I will boot mine using super grub again and will be able to give more detailed instructions . supergrub does not require the menu.1st to boot the linuz system, just the kernel and the initrd which can be manually entered.
would try the knoppix cd or you could use the debian install disk. just set the swap and the drive (don't format) escape back to the main menu, and configure system. Then you can re-install grub or lilo. Thats what I do when I am too lazy to grab another cd I forgot to modify my super-grub disk. the one i have doesn't support xfs lol.
