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 running RH7.3 and Win2k and I would like to use
Grub as my bootloader. I've read up on it a bit but i'm still
hesitant to get deep into it because I don't want to waffle my
system. I did however try to at least install it but i had some
First, my hard drives are set up as follows:
(More windows drives, not important)
I believe that it's trying to find your drive in this file /boot/grub/device.map. Apparently, it's not finding it. So, you'll probably have to edit the file. What does the file look like?
<Edit>The command ' grub-install --recheck ' is supposed to recreate the device.map file. So, that might be better than editing the file. I also read that after you add/remove disk drives that you should run that command.</Edit>
if i change (hd2) to (hd3) in the device.map for /dev/hdd
and also make sure hd3 is present in the menu.lst, when i boot
and grub loads i get Error 21 which means that some path is
incorrect or doesn't exist.
I don't know, but it may have something to do with the third physical hard drive (hd2) being related to a fourth device file (hdd) . But I don't know how to fix that, unless it's a PnP thing that can be fixed by de-activating PnP in your BIOS.
