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 just upgraded my rh8 system to rh9, and durring the process i told the install to install grub as my boot loader. after it finished installing it told my that grub had not been installed, and when i tried to make a boot disk, I got an error that said there was no media in my floppy drive, althought there was. So my question is, how do i install grub , from the command prompt (because I have a prompt using the rh9 discs rescue mode). Thanks.
to install grub, pop in your redhat 9 cd, tab f5 at the boot prompt to go into rescue mode, mount your root partition, type chroot /mtn/sysimage (that should put u in root mode) and then type grub-install /dev/hda, or /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda
THANKS!!! For the search engines that are going to come by this page, here's what happened to me:
Dual Boot system with WinXPHome and Linux Redhat (RH) 9 and the WinXPHome side blew up which made me do a total reinstall of XP. That of course blew out grub which allowed me to get into my Linux data.
Then because I had third party RPMs installed (NTFS support), I couldn't upgrade or reinstall without wiping out my data. Ugh, only thing I need to do is to reinstall GRUB and everything will be honky-dory. Ugh, how to reinstall just that.
Then found your post TheOneAndOnlySM. Thanks alot. If you find your self in the Lake Tahoe area and need a ski ticket, drop me a line.
