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.

Hi all, here is the situation. I have 1 RAID 0 SATA array (2 HD's) with winxp installed. A second RAID 0 (2 HD's) just for storage. And two more HD's (Master and Slave) connected to my primary IDE bus. First, the Fedora would not recognize my RAID arrays. So I decided to install on the Slave drive. I partitioned the Slave drive into 20 gig for linux, 5 gig for swap and the rest for storage and installed Fedora telling it to install the MBR into the first sector of the drive. The other option was to put the MBR onto the hda drive, which I believe is the RAID array that has problems being recognized, so I didn't choose it fearing that it would destroy the array. Now when I reboot, there is no grub, it just boots into windows. It's like linux isn't even there. I tried to set the boot order in the bios to use my Slave drive first but that didn't work. I think I did something wrong here and I don't know what. If anyone has a fix for this please let me know. I'm also willing to reinstall linux again correctly in case I installed it wrong. ANyway, thanks for any help!
How the installation of linux is, depends on the distro you chose to install.
My best advice is to unplug all the hard-disks that doesn't need to be connected for the linux install to work. In other words, try only having the hd you're going to install to plugged into the computer..
