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 have vista, xp and now fedora installed on my pc. vista is on one harddrive, whilst fedora and xp are on another.
Grub has picked up vista and fedora no problem, but i dont know how to configure it to boot xp.
i can still access xp by selecting the second drive as the main boot device from bios.
is there anyway i can configure the grub boot file to allow me to select xp.
i only have these 2 hard drives on my pc if that helps
In /boot/grub/menu.lst, the entry for xp will be similar to that for vista, except:
1. the "root" statement will point to the 2nd drive---eg if XP is on the 1st partition of drive 2, you'll have "root (hd1,0)".
2. You'll need the grub "map" command to trick the windows loader into thinking its on the first drive.
