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 have a hard disk of 20 GB, it has four partitions (5 GB each one). I installed Windows ME in my hard disk and in the last partition I decided install Linux Suse 6.3. I boot the computer from the CD ROM unit and inserted de first CD (are six CD´s), next, the Linux´s installation program asked me where I wanted to install Linux and I choosed the last partition, it did not ask me for the LILO configuration, it did not ask me for the kind of software for installing and did not ask me the CD number 4 and the CD number 6 (Why?). When the installation program finished it said: "Succesfully installation" (or something like that) and I could use the KDE desktop for some time, when i decided shotdown the computer I Could not! and I had to reset the computer. Now when I turn on my computer it is initializing with Windows ME and I can found Linux Suse, the Windows´ Explorer and the DOS do not reconigze the last partition. I read the installation manual but there propose some solutions that I could not do. I want to work with Linux but now I can not. I need information about how to solve this trouble and how can I choose the operating system when the computer is initializing or booting.
