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 installed Fedora core 1 a week or so ago and everything was going fine, until today when i turned my computer on, and I got this weird grub command prompt deal. it says: grub> then wants me to type one of a handful of commands.
My question is does anyone know why it's doing this, how I can fix it for the future so I can go back to being able to select which os to boot into using my arrow keys, and how I can boot into XP from the prompt?
i tried typing: "bare.i" "linux" and "rescue". but it said that bare.i is not a recognized command. It gives me a list of about 40 commands which I can type in, and unfortunately neither bare.i, linux or rescue are one of them.
I think I know now what caused this weird problem to arise. I ran DriveImage 2002 on XP, yesterday I believe, and it told me that it spotted some errors with a few of my partitions, something about these numbers not being the same, or not lining up or something. Without thinking, I just told DriveImage to fix them. That, I bet, messed up grub somehow, it probably messed up my whole hard drive for all I know, and now I'm stuck.
