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.

Logicaly I am a . I really need help with Multiboot With windows XP and linux. I cannot find any website that can explain it good.Does anyone know what to do. Remember i do not know ANYTHING so explain very detailed. I apreciate your help
very basically, you just set aside a chunk of hard drive space -- either a partition or an entire separate hard disk -- and use it for linux. that designated space will be divided into its own linux partitions. then you write a boot loader (usually either lilo or grub) to the master boot record, and when your computer starts up that kicks in and allows you to pick which OS you want to boot.
can you provide information on your hard drives and what distro you intend to use?
