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.

couple of questions-
1. i load windows first and them linux-right
2. i created a primary partion, active, and an extended partiiton with one logical dirve . when i start the install of red hat after installing windows xp on a fat 32, i get that red hat sees no drives , i don,t get it????any which way i try to do this install, windows first and linux second, i always get that linux cannot see drives or recognize a partition or unused space.
i am thinking linux does not recognize or uncompatbable hardware-my maxtor ata 133 hard drives.
i have tryed that too. i had windows xp installed on a fat 32 , primary active partition, 50% of my available raid 0 space, 40 gb, and the remaining 40 gb was free space. i partitioned the raid with the primary patition and formatted it , installed wind xp. then started the red hat install, hardware errror , no hard drives.
i have no problem installing on basically the same board, i also have a gig ga-7dxr, non-ata 133, it has dual ibm drives , ata 100, i have no problems
got to believe it,s the maxtor ata 133 drives not compatible
No, it's got to be your IDE RAID controller. Windows has enough problems with these, I can't imagine what Linux would do to one. But I've never tried installing one in Linux. It probably doesn't want to use BIOS calls to the disk array to read/write to it; it wants its own driver. Is the promise controller supported under linux?
well, the board i am installing on is a gig ga-7dxr+ board. it has promise fastrack ata 133. the other board i have linux installed is the gig ga-7dxr board, ata 100. maybe the promise fastrack ata 133 is giving me fits. either the raid ata 133 controller or maxtor ata 133 hard drives.
i have raid set on my 2 other computers running raid 0, red hat 7.3 on a abit be-611 v.2 board and the gig ga-7dxr board with suse 8. raid setup on on suse 8 is so easy, just a couple of clicks with the mouse.
