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.

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.

Hola... I really need help. i haven't been in windows for days so I only found out yesterday for the first time since I installed linux. LILO shows windows 2000 but when I select it the scren goes black with the message saying win2000 loading. and that's it. No crashes.. it just doesn't work.
LILO conf looked fine. I've tried setting hda1 / hda both but to no luck. I only need to go into windows now on occaision only for audio recording and some other stuff until I get everything sorted out in linux. But until then I really need help. please pretty please [I know it's winpoo but still help ]
here's a post of the windows section of LILO.conf:
Your problem might not be LILO. If your computer came preloaded with XP, the problem might be that you've changed the Windows partition. Preloaded systems don't work well (or at all) if their partition size is altered.
IF THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED, make sure you have a Linux boot disk. You should have been offered the opportunity to make one when you loaded Linux. If you didn't, make one now. Then make sure it works--put it in the drive and make it boot Linux.
Then reload XP. Doing this will overwrite the MBR. When XP is up and running, boot from the floppy and reload LILO with the 'lilo' command.
If this isn't your problem, give us more information about your computer's configuration and exactly how you installed Linux.
If you have a PC which can dual boot both Linux and NT then this driver may be of some use. By installing the driver you will be able to read files off your Linux filesystems using all the standard methods you use to access NTFS and FAT filesystems. That means you can use Explorer, cmd.exe and any other application to copy and read the files.
I also had a playaround with this software aaages ago when I had mandrake 7 or 7.2 installed for an extremely short amount of time
it's basically just a tool to allow you to access your linux partitions from windows.

OK I had Windows 2000 on my system until Mandrake 9.1 came out i was dual booting with redhat, mandrake and a couple others. The first time i set up my computer to dual boot i had the exact same problem as you then someone on computing.net told me to try that program, I did and had no problems dual booting.
