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'm having a bit of trouble trying to make a boot disk. Here's the issue:
I started out with a Windows XP system, and decided to get a new hard drive, so that I could run both Linux and Windoze. So, I throw my new drive onto master, the old one onto slave, and boot up. I install Linux on the new master, and everything's fine. Sure, Windows doesn't boot right from GRUB (I've given up on that for now). To Windows back up, I've been opening my system, and putting the old drive back to master, and just leaving the new one unplugged. This works fine... kinda. What I would really, really love is for the following situation:
Put the Windows back to master, so that normally, it'll boot to that. A boot disk, though, would be able to launch Linux.
Now, I would just run SuSE's YAST fun and get a boot disk from that, but I imagine that that will create issues. Right now, the SuSE drive is at master, and so it would write the boot disk to be like that. But if I were to put the Linux drive on slave, things wouldn't work right.
Any help at all is appreciated, I'll fool around on my own, but I really would rather have someone who knows what he's doing guide me. Thanks.
