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 was a windows user and then on may i jum into ubuntu. i am gettiong very acquinted with ubuntu i doesn't give me as much problem a windows does. today i saw a new linux. Limpus i downloaded and then i strated to intalled as shown in the manual but the i restarted the computer when it asked me and now my net book gets attached in something that seem like linbus root and i need t exit to acces windows and quit the process but i can't i don't know any command tha allows me to acces windows and quit it.
thanks for your observations and for the help you've given me about checking my spelling before I post and those things about which words to use and which not. I do understand that you give your support as and when you have time.
Now i have a better idea. I am stuck in GRUB. I can't bot neither with Ubuntu nor with Windows. All i want is to exit grub and bot on windows or Ubuntu. Can somebody give me a hand on this. I will be very greatfull to know.
Could you post the contents of your GRUB file please?
It is usually this file: /boot/grub/grub.conf. Since you cannot boot from hard drive, you will need to use a LiveCD or flash drive (USB) to boot. After booting, find the file and read it's content using: cat /boot/grub/grub.conf. Please paste all that shows up on the screen here.
If you get any errors, please show those.

Reason: Added last paragraph
Did you have some version of windows as well as Ubuntu previously installed? Did you install Linpus on a separate partition? Did you install it on the partition you had Ubuntu on?
It's not really clear from your initial post if you can boot into Linpus?
If you can and simply cannot boot windows, you will need to put an entry in the grub.conf or menu.lst file of Linpus for windows as indicated above.
In your second post, you indicate you are stuck in Grub so does that mean you cannot boot anything?
