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.

hey everyone out there, i have a little problem with linux my cousin just gave me his laptop which he wont be using for a while now (army stuff, heh) and it comes with linux mandrake and windows xp installed on it. i do not wish to learn to use linux frankly and i want to get rid of it but here's the catch: it has few things available, only the cds that come with it for system restore and no more (its an hp).
i wanna get rid of linux asap :P so any help is appreciated! if i uh missed some info you might need (most probably i did) ask and ill answer. thanks everyone.
In this case you don't need anything ... from a XP
boot disk prompt first do fdisk /mbr, make sure XP is
the active partition. Boot XP, and then use the
volume manager that lives in control panel delete
the Linux-partition, and make it a NTFS drive for
your data and such ...
