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 am dual booting my system with RH9 and win2k. I was using win2k and merged 2 partitions on my disk drive using partitionmagic 8. after i did that i restarted the computer and the grub command line came up. i cant boot into any OS. how do i boot into win2k and rh9? must i reinstall GRUB now? if so how do i do that? i need to fix this asap. please help thanks.
My guess is that merging part. 5 and 6 would cause all upper part. numbers
to change. For example /boot should now be on part. 8. Use your Linux
rescue disk to boot up and use fdisk to look at the partitions and see
if im right. If so, open grub.conf and make the appropreate changes.
If that does not work you may need to you as Mathieu said and reinstall
grub. If you need more help just ask. I may not be on my comp. again till
tomorrow around 1:00.
