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.

Rescue Mode should be independent of whatever is on your hard drive. It's root fs should be on a ramdisk. You then make a folder in this ramdisk (mkdir /hd3) and mount your /dev/hda3 to it (mount /dev/hda3 /hd3 -t ext3) so you can see if it's the right partition ('ls /hd3', you should see various linux files), and check if a certain configuration file is correct (cat /hd3/etc/fstab). 'fdisk -l' lists your partitions.
Take a look at this: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...ide/index.html
During the install, create a FAT32 partition (vfat) to exchange files between Win and Linux, since A) Linux can't write to NTFS without damaging it, and B) In Red Hat, to read NTFS you have to add support manually.
