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 think "E:" is another hard drive, no? If yes it is in a tab, it should either be called hdx or sdx with "x" usually a letter from the beginning of the alphabet. If you look at the screenshot above you see that two drives are present: hda and hdb
and now i've run the diskdrake !!!! when i installed the linux i've choosen about 400 MB to b as swap partition but now what i c is this 400 MB is read as windows partition from linux and the 35GB which should b E: partition is read as swap !!!
Looks like you have both your NTFS drives mounted already:
"/dev/hda5 /" = d: for linux_Mandriva
"/dev/hda1 /media/hd" = probably c: ntfs for winXP
"/dev/hda6 /media/hd2" = proabably e: ntfs for documents
Open a bash prompt (command line) and run "ls /media/hd" and "ls /media/hd2". If everyingthing is ok you should get the content of each driver.

[sarmad@localhost ~]$ ls /media/hd
AUTOEXEC.BAT* IO.SYS* Program Files/
boot.ini* MSDOS.SYS* RECYCLER/
CONFIG.SYS* NTDETECT.COM* System Volume Information/
dell/ ntldr* WINDOWS/
Documents and Settings/ pagefile.sys* YServer.txt*
[sarmad@localhost ~]$ ls /media/hd2
i think there is a problem with the swap coz as i told u when i open the hard disk manager of linux i've found the swap is occupying the partition which is supposed to b for documents which is the E: partition as i c it from the win !!
Strange. You are saying the 35GB are used as swap? So first of all save anything what you have on your 35GB partition (if nothing is on it the better). Then start diskdrake and enable advanced mode. You should first try to assign a swap partition on the 400MB big one. For this first unmount the 400MB partition. Then the options should change and you should find something saying "type" (I don't have it in english here) where you have a list of filesystems. Choose "linux-swap" and confirm (make sure everything important has been saved on another hard drive before!). Then use the same procedure for the second partition, just select "NTFS" as filesystem this time. Re-mount both partitions, exit the diskdrake and restart your machine.
