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.

Hi, i have 2 x 160GB hard drives in Raid 0, so system sees it as one big hard drive. (those are ide drives connected to onboard SiL SATA controllers via IDE to SATA converters).i have few partitions on it (3).
1 primary and 2 logical.
i created some space for linux and created 3 partitions there (tried to make em all primary but win won't let me do that, because i think u can only have 3 primary partitions max (i already had 1 win primary partition)), so i did / as primary and / home as prim, swap was logical. when i went to slackware setup, it showed me the primary partitions , but it was unable to detect swap partitions. So i thought that i'm gonna try make all the partitions for linux logical. When i did that, setup was unable to locate any partition created at all. I'd be very greateful if anyone could help me with setting it up.
My motherboard is Asus A7N8X Deluxe with NVIDIA chipset onboard.
i searched on the net for some info, and people say that it's easier to disable raid and install linux in IDE mode. but will that destroy my data , already on the drive (two drives in raid 0)? i think it will and i dont want this to happen. any other ideas. let me know.
o yeah, when i created partitions for linux as primary i was able to see them in setup. the thing is that it will only allow me to make 3 primary partitions ( i have one for win, and two for / and /home). i couldnt add swap as primary.
