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 newbie on linux,just now i've solved out my lost windows grub setting helped by brother johnfine, again thanks brother..
now i mount the ntfs to /dev/hda2 /media/winxp, after "nano" the /etc/fstab. it's run well, but i didn't see my documents folder and others which is placed on "c:\" in windows version..
Again i'd like to inform you, that i'm not so good in english, then please forgive any unwise and maybe not polite words.
please see below partition:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
17870152 4402712 12545024 26% /
/dev/hda6 101086 24550 71317 26% /boot
tmpfs 512716 0 512716 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda2 8393960 1842956 6551004 22% /media/winxp
Looks like you have the "recovery" partition mounted !!
Many OEM's will create a separate partition for "recovery" files, in order to restore your computer to its original software/OS. I am assuming this is what ukiuki is referring to.
I would suggest you use the "-h" option with df, which will show you human readable (MB, GB etc) filesystem sizes.
Unless I am mistaken, (its been a long time since ive done anything with Windows), i would imagine that the normal C:\ windows partition, would be /dev/hda1, but checking "fdisk -l" should confirm this.
