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.

Eventually you will need to create some free disk space if you want to install Linux to your hard drive. In the mean time a Live CD is a good way to try Linux. Check out Distrowatch.com for the hundreds of choices.
If you install Fedora, it will install grub which will automatically give you the option at boot time to boot into either Fedora or Windoze.
Just make sure you have Windoze installed *first*, which I think you have.
You can install VMware player on your windows XP but before installing your RAM size has to be minimum 256 MB & atleast 1 to 5 GB free disk space in your system. After installing VMware you can install as many OS as you want by creating a virtual machine. Also insert the OS CD & start creating virtual machine on VMware.
so thats it, on windows you can work on as many OS as you want without rebooting the system.
