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 am intending to install Linux (Red Hat V7.0) on my PC, but I am newbie in Linux and I don't know anything about the installation process.
My PC currently using Windows XP, and I have 11 Gigs hard disk space which is only one partition. I need to still access my Windows XP tools, so I need the 2 operating systems (Windows and Linux) to be operating on my PC.
Can any body advice my what to do and where to start? Can any body give me a clue?
Use Partition magic for putting some part of the 11 Gigs for the Linux partition. After that just restart your computer with the linux cd inside to install Linux in the new partition.
The installation is quite easy, it will format the partition, install everything you want and configurate lilo. Good luck.
If you mean for windows, definitly FAT32, because you cant write to NTFS in linux yet.
If your talking about Linux, you dont use those file systems. Most likely, your going to want to use either EXT3 or ReiserFS. Personally, I like ReiserFS, its faster and uses less space, but EXT3 is more widely supported. Your decision.
