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.

I have two IDE drives. I have Win XP on the master drive and the slave has Red Hat installed on it. When I installed Red Hat, it did not prompt me for boot options (I installed a beta version of Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 3). I wanted to create a bootable floppy to keep Red Hat completely separate from my Windows installation. Well, at boot time, it boots from my master drive with Win XP on it, but grub somehow got installed on this drive because it pops up with a choice to either load Red Hat or Windows. The problem I'm having is that when I load up Win XP I can ping everything else in my network, but I can't ping myself. This just started happening after I installed Red Hat. When I boot to Red Hat, I can ping myself with no problems. I'm not certain this is causing the problem with not being able to ping myself, but it is the only thing that has changed. I've tried fdisk /mbr, but I get an error saying invalid device. fdisk expects a device name. I've already created a boot floppy with mkbootdisk and I just want to get grub off of my WinXp drive without affecting Windows to see if that somehow clears things up. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
