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.

Hi - after a disasterous failed upgrade from fedora 10 to 11, which destroyed my Lnux (2nd) hard disk, and destroyed GRUB Bootloader, I find myself in the position of a dual boot machine (WIN, Fedora), booting automatically into GRUB shell command line, with no GRUB MENU: now options to select WIN, LINUX etc.
Thru a trick in GRUB, and aid in these forums, I managed to used commands to get WIN booted after 3 days.
I wish to replace the GRUB Bootloader with the WIN NT Bootloader, and so avoid booting directly into the GRUB command shell, every time I start the machine.
I believe the GRUB bootloader resides on the first (of 2) hard disks, the windows disk. How can I replace the grub bootloader with the WIN NT bootloader please?
I have tried to boot from WIN install disk (thinking about FIXMBR procedure), but that CD simply does not boot.
Is there a manual method to replace one bootloader with another?
It does appear that my Linux disk is trashed, but I can live with that and start over, once I can boot cleanly.
