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.

yes. Well actually, it was the master originally, but I chose to make it slave because it had a defective MBR which wouldn't accept lilo. This was yesterday. Knoppix is now installed on the master drive
But just now I added the primary slave under the bios (duh, lol,) and it STILL doesn't work. Now it just hangs at 'Loading WindowsXP', though the error is gone so I guess thats a good sign.
I've tried both with the 'table' entry and without. Any ideas as to how I could get windows to load?
...are there any dangers associated with using those parameters...
The map-drive option tells Windows that the Primary Slave is the Primary Master and Vise Verse.
When I used this with an XP preview version my only concern was making sure Windows did not automatically try to scan, fix or defrag my Linux partitions.
The map-drive option worked fine the whole 6 months I had it running.
You should notice that Windows thinks it is on C:
