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 using win2k, and have 3 partition i use partition 2 to install Linux, i've already read the
install manual, but it do not consider about this problem. But when i install RH8 in my friend's computer
it works very well. ???????
In the manuals there is a comment about making room for Red Hat. It basically says that Red Hat will treat any partition it encounters as active and not want to install in it. Red Hat like encountering empty space and doing its own partitioning. If you want to put it where your second partition is, delete the second partition and point it at the empty space.
That said, is the third partition a Windows one? Windows is much happier if it doesn't encounter any non-Windows partitons (such as Linux) between any partitions it understands. If this third partition is for Windows, put where partition two is and install Red Hat after it.
