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.

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.

Waiting for a precious reply from all of your side.
Thanks in advance!!!
What Linux distribution?
Does the Linux install run OK?When you installed Linux, did you install a bootloader (GRUB or LILO)? If so, please post the contents of the configuration file (for GRUB, this is probably /boot/grub/menu.lst)
Note that--when running in Linux--you will not see the Windows drive letters. If you have regular IDE, you will have /dev/hda1 (first partition on the first drive) and others depending on your setup. (e.g. do you have 3 drives, or three partitions on one drive?) If the Linux install is working, post the output of cat /etc/fstab
No, i have one hard disk having three partitions C,D and E on which WinXP,Win Server and Linux respectively are installed.
The contents of the file "boot/grub/menu.lst" are displayed below.
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,6)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda9
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
