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'm new here and relativly new to linux, I've only been using it for a month or so.
I had SUSE 10.1 and windows XP dual booting fine until I reinstalled windows, I formatted my C drivethen re-installed, after a few days of getting windows how I wanted it and installing software I wanted to get dual booting again, this is where the fun starts....
I wacked in the SUSE DVD and got into SUSE using the "other" installation option and choosing boot installed os. I then followed some (vague) instructions on setting up grub (which I cant find now so I'm not totally sure what I did). So now when I turn on my pc Grub loads up and has the options that it had before (SUSE, SUSE fail safe and windows), SUSE loads perfectly from the menu but windows does not, it displays the following error
filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xf
I have tried a few different values in the /boot/grub/menu.lst file but to no avail. I then noticed that my C drive isn't mounting as it used to, it is in the /windows folder but there are no files in it. It also shows up in media:/ with the disk size but has the un-mounted icon, trying to mount it using the menu in konqueror displays "premissions
denied" (this is using konqueror as root). Using the df command gives the following output:
So I did some more searching for the specific error that grub gives and came across this
Would this apply to use 10 x64? It involves installing a driver update but the instructions are for 32bit suse 9.1.........
