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'm new to Linux and I have some problems with lilo. I have 2 slackware partitions (one for testing and the other one for doing serious stuff) on a 40GB hard drive on my Laptop and I want to be able to boot on both.
The problem I have is, only the partiton which is the current root and from where I try to install lilo will work the other one will boot, but during startup, many programs like modprobe, mount, cardmgr, will complain that files are missing (No such files or directory) and the computer will stop booting.
Looks like an access path problem to me, but the 'root' variables in my lilo.conf seems to be ok. I've read the man pages for lilo.conf and the user.tex but didn't find anything very useful for my problem.
By the way, what program is use to read .tex document on unix system? I try tex and latex but got many errors so I ended with a text editor and found many programing codes with the text.
Hmmmm... so much to learn when you start on a new system! :-)
