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.

last week i added a second scsi hard drive to one of our win2k workstation in the lab and installed redhat7.3 on that 2nd drive. prior to the installation, i'd completely disconnected the win2k drive so that redhat was installed on it's own. in doing so, i'd installed lilo on the mbr. in the past i've successfully boot into both OS simply by adding win2k to the lilo.conf file but it didn't work this time. whenever i tried booting into win2k, i would see the win95?? startup screen and then it would lockup. strange to say the least.
the only difference i can tell from previous dual boot systems i've worked with is that the windows drive was installed using NTFS but this system was installed using FAT32. with i did a fdisk on /dev/sdb(windows) it displayed sdb1 as FAT16 and sdb2 as Win95 FAT32. can anyone shed some light on this matter??
here is the lilo setting which worked fine for the win2k partition on other machines in our lab
