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 reinstalled Windows XP on my machine, deleting the exsiting Windows partition, then creating a new partition (with xp install disk). Now that Windows is installed for some reason INstead of C: its I:
AND EVEN WORSE:
When I turn on my computer, I dont get selection to start up LINUX! It just loads Windows! I'm so afraid what do I do!?!?! I love LInux!!!
When you reinstalled Windows, you wrote over you Linux bootloader.
You must reinstall it. I don't know Mandrivia, so if you're using
GrUB -- I can't help. Never could do that right myself. If you're
using LiLO, you can boot with an install CD (can in Slackware) and
then issue as root "liloconfig" and reconfigure LiLO.
Mandrake, Mandriva or whatever it is called now, used to have a rescue part of the first install CD. Just use that and tell it to reinstall your bootloader. All the Linux stuff is there provided you didn't repartition your drive or anything like that. This is also very common and I really think Billy does that to annoy us Linux users.
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
