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.

Newbie question: I have two HDD's. Have Win XP on the "C" drive and Red Hat 9.0 on the second HDD. Gave Red Hat 20 GB of the 100 GB HDD. The second HDD appears in Windows Explorer within XP Home. Unable to access the HDD though. No size properties are displayed. Unable to format from within Explorer even though the option is available on the pop-up window. Would like to be able to have access to the remaining 80 GB for use by Windows.
Also receive a GRUB HDD error upon initial power-up of my system. Have to restart to access the GRUB screen. Note, GRUB resides on the beginning sector of my secondary (100 GB) HDD.
Opened a terminal in Red Hat and used fdisk to make the extra 80GB of the 2nd HDD FAT32 (option b). Of course Win XP wants me to format the disk in NTFS... Don't believe that Red Hat will recognize data on a NTFS partition. Any ideas on how to leave it as a FAT32 that both Win XP and Red Hat would recognize? BTW my primary HDD is formated as NTFS. Thanks...

If eXPeriment refuses to format FAT, Linux will ;)
