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.

why won't my fat32 partitions show up in fstab and how do I add them. I am running redhat 9 in dual boot (boot magic 8) with winxp and none of my fat32 partitions show up in fstab or in the disk manager.
U must install Windows before linux!!!
And then use partition magic do allacate space
then setup linux
I've never use Boot magic.
So I suggest LILO(Linux Loader)
While configuring LILO It's very imaportant!!!
(not just LILO but if u want dual boot as well)
If u want to install XP
Boot loader must install at MBR (It's not fix but good idea)
If u want to install 2000
Boot loader must install at first sector of root partition
I think if i were u I 'll install XP!
because if u want windows partition
is the part of Linux. XP can do safer
Because Xp's file format have two choice
Use FAT32 if U want to mount win partion in LINUX.
It 's safer and easier.
