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.

so, i finaly got my hdd in the new comp an re-installed red hat 9.0, but once i had finished i was faced with new probs :/
my system looks like this
IDE primary master (hds) with winXP
IDE primary slave (hdb) with RH 9.0
during install of redhat i choosed to install grube on hdb becaus i was not sure if installing the bootmanager would kill my windows.
ok first reboot without boot disk, xp loads instead of the bootmanager. ok, changed the boot-part in my BIOS so that hdb gets bootet first, but instead the graphical bootmanager i had on my old PC while linux was the only OS installed, i get a text interface grube> and i can not login because it refuses to load the kernel. i told him the path to the kernel (i found the syntax in a manual) bit it did not work.. with boot disk it works but i do not always want to use this disk :/
so is there a possibility to "repair" grube (whatever it has) or can I installthe bootmanager on my windows HDD woithout killing it? (if so, how do i do this? *did not found s.th. )
am thankfull to anyone who helps me
and thanks for reading this
