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 installed window 2000 server on primary master(60GB) and redhat linux 8 on primary slave(13GB). I have installed GRUB as the boot loader. However, when I start the computer, the GUI for GRUB only shows redhat linux. I can not boot my window 2000 now. Please let me know if you have any idea of how to fix the problem. Thank you!
I have almost the same setup : win xp on one drive and linux 8.0 on the other.
I have both drives set up for cable select as opposed to master/slave (I don't know if it matters)
But I had to edit my "/etc/lilo.conf" file:
Basically you only need to add everything from "other =" on.
( my hda is linux and hdb is windows, yours my be the other way around)
Check your hardware browser, and check hard drives to find out what hard drive is what! (I use KDE so my hardware browser is under System Tools). Hope this helps!
