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 at school right now, but when I'm home I'll post the file.
I have installed Windows XP on HD40gig
and I have installed Linux on HD120GIG.
Afterwards I have installed linux again on HD40GIG on the windows partition with the intention to choose at the startup what OS to use.
This worked so far.
Untill I wanted to launch windows of cource ...
I hope somebody can help ...
(I'll post the file in an hour or so)
Boot your Linux, open a terminal and type 'mount'. Then look at the result and search for the directory you have your WIndows files in /mnt/windows (or just /mnt/). What do you have in the same line at the beginning? If it's /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 or /dev/hda1 you need to change the lilo.conf file. I'd also show you the lat section:
Save it, run 'lilo' as root and reboot to see if it works.
