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.

my computer has installed the linux 8.0 and now I want to remove it and install windows 98, however, when the windows disc was checking my hard disk, it said my hard disk has bad sector...but i don't think so....what's wrong with it? Any way to remove the linux ?
1. a:\fdisk /mbr
2. a:\fdisk and delete all partitions (reboot)
3. a:fdisk and recreate all partitions (not forgetting to make the primary partition) (reboot)
4. a:\format c: (and wait for that to complete)
5. remove floppy. insert cd. (reboot)
linux is about choice, if linux keeps growing and growing, and i hope it will, it will become the main os of every one
i dont mind microsoft, but its the stuff they produce that drives me up the wall windows for example, it crashes, its insecure, and you dont know whats going on half the time with it.
as with linux you can see whats going on you can lock down your system even tighter, there are less bugs, and system is more stable, i could do on listing the benifits of linux but i think i shal stop there as i dont want to start another 'mine is better than yours' match
any who i have walked away from the main topic in the thread, lets not stray to far
