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've just installed Fedora Core 2 on my laptop. This is the break down of how my drive is partitioned:
WinXP - I have this as NTFS and is my XP system partition
Doc - I have this partition available for files and such, FAT32
UNALLOCATED - I left 7 GB of unallocated space for my Fedora Core 2 installation
When I installed Fedora Core 2 It gave me an error saying something to the likes of "my partition tables aren't aligned, and MAY cause a problem with some boot loaders, but is unlikely"? then gave me the option of ignoring it, so i did
other then that the installation went fine, i installed linux in the unallocated space without a swap file.
Now when I boot my computer and choose XP it just displays this and stops:
I can boot into Linux fine, and a friend of mine edited fstab so I can see my NTFS and FAT32 partitions. Any suggestions?? does the error mentioned above have anything to do with it? Be gentle, I'm a real newbie
Well, I fixed by going to the link mentioned in the reply above and re-installed everything on my drive and manually set the CHS it worked! i have both winXP and FC2. Now the only problem is I can't mount my NTFS or FAT32 partitions??? anyideas? It worked fine before?
