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 wanted more space so I used Windows XP Disk Management tool to delete D: EXT3/linux parition and also my swap partition. Then I used the same tool to create a NTFS partition and 2 weird things happened:
a) my HD capacity doubled from 120GB to 210GB... :S
b) the new D: partition created sized at 55GB (when it should've been 5GB max.)
Well, I wasn't fully awake at the time and started using my new 55GB partition; moving around files/MP3s, etc. I started noticing my E: files (.jpgs, .exes, .zips, .rars) gradually being corrupted. It wasn't now that I realised that stupid WindowsXP has overlapped my D: with E: !!! so E: files were being overwritten... MP3s getting garbled, JPGs being incomplete, etc. What a mess!
I hate Microsoft. Why can't they for once start being compatible with linux?!
