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.

Yeah, I knew it was google, and yes I did google but nothing worked, also I did try the terminal but init 3 didn't work i got bash: init: command not found
, unless my reg. terminal isnt the root, but I thought it was... if it isnt, im going to google it first, but just in case can someone help me out?
EDIT: I feel really stupid lol, alright I got into my root directry (after googling it ) and i typed in init 3 and it loged off of Fedora and went through some stuff and kinda didn't do anything so i forced quit with CTL-ALT-DELETE. Then I went back into root, and typed in fdisk /div/hda and deleted my partitions, but, i restarted my comp, and Fedora loaded up, so i tryed to get back into fdisk and it says its unable to open
EDIT: Nothing worked, I was on google for 4 hours and nothing
Windows won't get reinstalled until you format your hard disk and create a new
NTFS partition , I 'm afraid.
Try the command 'cfdisk'. I find this program easier than fdisk. No idea if it is
on your Fedora cd, though.
As previous poster said, you have to choose 'write' at the end of your modifs
otherwise the partition table won't be altered. If you manage to create a whole
NTFS partition, Windows will install with no problem.
Hey, I just like to say thanks for all the people whos been trying to help me out, and I got one question is cdisk is a program, and is on my Fedora cds, what will it look like? Also I still cannot get into Fdisk, it says its unable to open, should I just regular install Fedora again then try? or what. And with the NTFS parition, where and how do I make this?
>Well I would put the windows disk in, and it says Hit any key to boot from >disk, when it goes into inspecting system configuration, then its goes black >and doesnt do anything, still having problems with.
I am suspicious. You say that it says to 'hit any key to boot from disk'.??
It should not say anything like that once you have enable boot from CD and the WinXP CD is in the CD drive........
atleast, it should say 'Boot from CDROM'.......
