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 would like to dual boot Win 2k and Red Hat 7.1. I have a 30 GB h.d. and I would like to partition the HD so it has 2 partitions for Win 2k one for the filesystem on one for media files. I was thinking that I could designate 15gb to the Win O/S, 10GB to media files partition, 5 GB for the Linux partitions, but I am unsure what will provide the best performance. I know that I also have to load Lilo into the MBR but am also unsure how to configure that. I guess my questions would be how do I set the partitions for the system in Dick Druid or another application including the swap file. Will there be an issue with NTFS? Is there any thing that I need to know? I'm very reluctant to just play around with my system as I am not the only one who uses this system and if I hose it and it's not available my girlfriend will restrain from any and all sexual activity, as I am busy and don't have the time to find another girlfriend. Just kidding....actually any links to this information would be helpfull. I can't afford to have much down time over a few hours, and I feel with the littlest help I can accomplish that.
Thank you in advance....
