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. running rh9 which installed grub by default was happy, dual boot w/ winxp, was happy. later---apt-get got into a fight with rh's rpm thingy and lilo got installed and grub didn't work anymore, still, fairly happy. but, I decided to uninstall lilo to see if grub would work again (a Learning thinG) and now on boot it just goes...
so, after some net hunting and rescue disk inserting it seems I just need to boot off of cd into resuce mode and chroot to the sysimage then type 'lilo', which will reinstall it and make everything happy again!....but...I want a second opinion, and this prob won't work anyways due to aptget and rpm's catfighting al over my system about where sh*t goes. Thanks, c. (oh yeah...please help!)
I tried the grub-install thing, didn't quite work because some relic of lilo was still trying to boot from hda, so booted from rh9 cdrom and went through settup till I got to the insatll new boot loader, did that which gave me lilo back, then just had to go in and config lilo and everybody was happy. I like grub better too, which is what got me into this mess...I will attempt it again later. btw, there were plenty of websites dealing with configing a corrupt lilo while it was still there, but none (well, hardly any) if it wasn't. thanks for your help.
