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 am new to this group and I'd like to find out what to do about a couple of issues I am having:
With the help of a Linux expert who is now unavailable for a few weeks, I need to complete the setup of my laptop. We updated my laptop that runs Fedora Core 1 with the latest and greatest .rpm's BUT there's still a couple of things I need to do:
1) I installed Oracle on the laptop but for whatever reason, can't seem to find it or start it up. I'm used to Windows' - Start, Programs and there it would be, but it seems totally different with Linux and I need to find out how to "call up" the program I guess you would say.
2) More important even than the Oracle is that I created a partitioned Hard Drive with 8 GB free to install Windows but it's not easy. I'm trying to do things in "reverse mode". Fedora is already on the laptop and I don't want to remove it. I tried loading Win2K Professional from a bootable CD for the other partition and it works through the first segment but when the laptop reboots to continue the install, it always uses the Fedora partition and up comes Linux and the Windows install on the partition fails. How can I get around this problem? I want Fedora and Windows to be on 2 separate partitions which is my goal.
