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'm currently using Fedora 10 (in a few days I'll be using Fedora 11) and Windows XP. I've got a GeForce8800 GTS with a dual output.
I want to be able to boot both Fedora and XP and run each one of the OS on a separate screen. Is it possible to do this WITHOUT running a dual OS application (thus, I want to run each OS separately, without an "emulator")?
If this isn't possible, can anyone suggest a Linux application (NOT a windows application) that enables you to run XP (or any other windows) in a separate window, and if possible on a separate monitor with the minimum performance loss?
Distribution: Debian PPC/i386/AMD64 6/7, Vista, XP , WIN7, Server 03/08
God virtualize. I run Debian Lenny 5.1 wit a dual monitor setup with my laptop monitor as the main and an external LCD as the secondary. First step get Fedora running with your dual monitor setup, once your dual monitor setup is working install VirtualBox or possibly even vmware player. Then create a VM using your XP partition as the harddrive (google for tutorials on that one) Once you have your VM setup with the physical partition as the harddrive for the VM boot the VM then place it on whichever screen you want and run the VM in full screen mode, you will have your dual OS setup. NOTE: You will need to install VBOX tools or VMWARE tools to get seamless mouse integration. ALSO NOTE:YOu may have to reactivate windows once it boots in the VM, if you boot between XP on computer and XP in the VM you may have to activate windows everytime. This will soon eat up the limit MS puts on activation. There are ways around it, google for it.
