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 initially have fedora core 3 on my pc.Later i installed windows xp.Now i want to rescue my linux.so i kept the FC3 first cd and typed linux rescue.
But the problem was that its not detecting FC3 already on my pc.Even then i tried mounting /dev/hda5 ( Linux root partition ) to /mnt/sysimage and
i tried chroot /mnt/sysimage.And then i tried grub-install /dev/hda but i got the following error.... "Not found or not a block device"
You installed FC3, then WIndows. Now the box boots straight to Windows and you want the option of both right? If so it's very easy as long as FC3 IS still in there and you didn't let Win wipe it out (as it will by default).
Just boot the first FC3 disk, forget about rescue, do it like an install. IF it's still in there you'll be given the option to install or upgrade. Pick upgrade, it will skim over anything take only a min or two, and in the process will re-install grub for you adding Windows in the boot list. Thats it again IF it's still there.
I reinstalled FC because I need it and didn't had time to fix it!
I think problem was in the bios! It doesn't wanted to load mbr!
After reintall all works fine except I need to install all progs again!
Thanks every body!
