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.

There isnīt an fdisk program for Windows XP. Use the fixmbr menu option in the Windows repair console. fdisk /mbr is what you would use if you had windows 98 or windows 95. You need to boot up with the windows install disk and press the function key for repair.
And to reclaim the disk space previously used by linux, just open Disk Management in windows and remove the linux partition and create a windows one on its place.
