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.

Hi, I have two hard disk installed in my machine. One is old one connected to the 2nd SATA port of motherboard. In this Harddisk Windows XP installed in the 2nd partition.
Other hard disk is a new one connected to the 1st SATA port of Motherborad. Initially old hard disk(2nd SATA port) was in booting sequence in the CMOS. Then I changed the booting sequence to boot from new Hard disk(1st SATA port). Then I installed Windows 7 first and then Red Hat Linux 6 in that new hard disk. Linux in partition 2 and Windows 7 in partition 3. During Linux installation, when GRUB configuration dialoge comes I put Windows XP and Windows 7 accordingly following the location of Windows XP and Windows 7 correctly(i assume). Now when i restart, GRUB menu comes. When I select Linux or Windows 7, they load without any trouble. But when I select XP, it does not load and the screen shows black(nothing).
I thought, XP may be corrupted. To check it, I change the booting sequence form CMOS and put old hard disk(where XP was installed) as 1st boot device. Now when i restart, XP loads without any trouble.
Can any one help me to load XP from GRUB menu.
Did you said Redhat 6 ? Why so old version? I have Redhat 6.1 it is from 1999. And i remember people having that kind of trouble back then with multiple boot options with different windows installation.
Why dont you use an up to date version? The current Redhat version is Fedora 16.
