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 a very strange problem. I'm using vista on my laptop and I tried to install ubuntu 8.04. When I was installing it, it used to get hanged during installation. I tried a lot and then shifted to fedora core 6. The installation was completed and it asked for reboot. I rebooted the system and the GRUB doesn't show up. That is, Fedora doesnt boot at all. I reinstalled GRUB, but it made no difference. Now when I log in to vista, I find that my touchpad isnt working.
PS: I had installed Fedora Core 6 some 15 months ago and it worked like a charm. But now I get this problem.
I dint have any other version of fedora. So I tried fc6. And I dint change anything in the BIOS. Also, I did not upgrade my vista to SP1. But what can be the problem? I never came across this kind of problem.
