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.

Apparently my xp(32bit) and my fedora 5(amd64) grub do not like to coexist. I usually lose my xp boot (yea I know, linux is all one needs) with often the ntoskern file not able to be found. It is there however right where it says is it not. This is often after a kernel update. Grub is installed into(onto?) the mbr. The disc(80 new gig wd) has one primary partition(a fat32) and one logical. The logical partition has in this order a ntsf(xp), fat32(data partition , fedora root,fedora boot, linux swap ,xp swap and a acronics secure zone)I would like to read the grub2 docs but I not finding much. I would like to see if grub2 would help my problem. I have to keep xp for some programs not available in linux. I have succeeded in moving my wife to linux for the last few months but she never needs xp. I actually can not believe how much I learned in this last 6 to 8 months since I started down the path away from Microsoft. Oh any other suggestion concerning this is much appreciated. I am sure I am being an idiot somehow. Thanks to all.
