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 have two hard drives in my system, one with four partitions, windows, /, /home, and a swap, and another hard drive with a single windows partition. Both win partitions are formatted FAT32, and I am able to access them both under linux (mandrake 9.1) I am also able to boot to the windows partition that resides on the first hard drive (along with linux).
(I dunno if it matters at this point, but both windows installations are WinXP)
My second hard drive is /dev/hdc1, and is mounted to /mnt/hdc. I'm able to see the contents of the drive, but am not able to access any folders or files, nor view any properties.
I've added the proper entry for the second hard drive into /etc/lilo.conf, have updated with /sbin/lilo, and restart.
The second boot entry shows up just fine, but once selected, it dumps right to a black screen "NTLDR missing".
Too bad it's not missing... everything is perfectly intact on the hard drive, and it boots in other systems, but for some reason LILO won't do it.
I'm not sure what the problem here is, but ANY help would be greatly appreciated... thanks.
