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.

How do u unistall it. see what happened first was i had linux 9 on a widows 98 computer which just killed the memory so i took off linux and put in the windows 98 recovery disk and it formated the disk and installed windows 98 back on but when u turn the computer back on it come to a black screen with one word on it and it is the word GRUB. can some one get me detailed instructions on how to remove this, so i can have a normal windows operating computer again. thanks in advance andrew
Originally posted by masand "fdisk /mbr" rewrites the windows mbr no matter which windows version is installed
in newer version of win u need to use "fixmbr"
What i intended to ask was that generally when we reinstall windows XP it automatically rewrites mbr. But here why we have to use "fdisk /mbr" manually ??? Doesn't win 98 after reinstallation, in case of dual booting, overwrites the grub boot loader in mbr ??
