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.

Could someone provide detailed instructions on how to remove SuSE 10.3 from my dual boot computer (Windows vista home edition) such that I won't do any permanent damage? From some preliminary googling, I understand that I need to worry about the master boot record... I really have no idea how to do this. Wanted to try to use linux with Vista without partitioning but couldnt now everytime I start up it still gives me the option to open suse I want it gone but dont have a clue. Any suggestions on Linux without partioning or being totaly dedicated to linux, would like to try to learn it slowly.

The easiest way is to set your boot default to windows then set your timeout to 1 or 2 seconds. Then take masking tape and cover the monitor where the Suse 10.3 shows briefly on the grub menu. In time you should be able to forget you have Suse on your computer.
When you've fixed up the HDD, try a few of the LiveCDs available. These run purely off the CD drive, so they won't affect your MS system. Performance will obviously be a bit slower, but its a good way to test drive Linux.
Have a look at distrowatch.com .
