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.

uhm.. start again like.. remove my xp and stuff and repartition again? or just the linux side?
I tried running cfdisk with slackware.. I deleted the partions of linux i previously made ( including the one i merged using partion magic).. and repartitioned again using cfdisk.. but no avail.. still the same thing.
hey marccu, i just mean restore your hard drive to just windows and try again with only partition magic.
1 - make fat partition for boot magic
2- install boot magic
3- click new partition in partition magic and click linnux
4- Set size for swap and select ext2 for linnux
install lilo on ext2 partition and boot magic will be automatically disabled. u'll find it easier if u have only the partitions i mentioned before.
im a bit wary about trying to help u since i only installed red hat as a dual boot a few days ago and the problem i experienced was through not really understanding partitioning and not reading the red hat documentation.
