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.

Chris H - well , I installed GRUB when I installed Fedora ; no , I didn't go "expert" mode when installing LILO as I never used this boot loader before - I'll try "expert" mode the next time though , thanks
Andrew - the problem is that the GRUB "splash" image and everything is on the Fedora /boot partition , wich is destroyed when I create the partitions needed for Slackware to install
+ even if I wouldn't 'destroy' the /boot partition , there is no way I could access it - thanks for replying !
Sorry I misunderstood. I thought you meant you had Fedora and Windows installed and wanted to add Slack to the list. In my experience it's very difficult to get lilo to boot two different types of linux and Windows (which is why I like Grub so much) but if you just want Windows and Slack then if I were you I would go round the install process again and put lilo on the master boot record (MBR). If that fails then you could either reinstall Fedora or boot with the Windows CD and use that to fixmbr http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/h...ons_fixmbr.asp
