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.

HI. I'm running a machine with 2 hard drives. I had previously installed Windows XP and SuSE 9.0 in the first HD. Everything was OK. Then I decided to try Fedora Core 3, and installed it in the second drive. When installing, Fedora overwrote SuSE's Grub, so I reinstalled it and configured it to boot Fedora besides win XP and SuSE. The problem is, after that I can't boot windows, so I decided to reinstall it, but the installation program hangs up after the message: "Detecting your hardware". I tried booting a Hiren's boot cd which has a lot of HD tools, but it hangs up after chosing "Boot Hiren's CD" in the first screen. I brought the HD to a friend's and he somehow managed to boot Hiren's boot cd (maybe it was another version) and formated the entire hard drive. I thought the problem would be solved, but it's still the same. I guess there's a problem with the partition table, since after that, I can install and run linux on this HD, but not Windows. Does anyone know about some way to fix the problem and install win xp again? (No matter if I have to lose all the information on this HD).
Thanks in advance.
