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 all. I have a question. I plan on getting a cheap Dell or something and I was wondering something. Would LILO be able to find Windows and Linux in the boot process when they're installed on two separate drives (not a separate partition of the same drive) ? I don't wanna have to reformat without a good reason. I hate Windows installations. Like for example: the windows drive is a 120 GB and I get another internal 120 GB for Linux. Would LILO read em both and know what to do?
Techincally no, Lilo can easily boot any OS on any partition, but it's up to your distro or you to create the entries for lilo. Most modern distros should do this, unless they're the compile-from-source variety. Mandrake does and I think RedHat would too.
Coz images lag slow the pages and really aren't needed. No one cares about a sig image, sorry to break that to you.
If you get a newbie-ish distro as mentioned they you'll almost certainly never have a problem, but I just felt like pointing out that one of the roll-your-own/from source distros isn't as likely to configure everything for you.
