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 recently installed linux on my sisters computer, The primary os is windows (because my mom and sisters arent to computer savy), and i find that im constantly running out of room, i have linux sitting on an 80gig drive with almost nothing on it.... so i want to uninstall linux and just do the windows thing (or rather thats what they want me to do). so my problem isnt as easy as formating the drive, im running a dual boot lilo loader system, and i want to know what steps should be taken to uninstall the lilo loader and return my machine to a single boot windows machine, delete the linux partition on my main drive, and then format the new drive (whats the best way)... any input would be great.
THanx very much. and im sorry to see that they dont want it,
but linux is still strong on the male side of our family...
If your RH cd has it, use the rescue feature to format the whole drive back to FAT32, or NTFS for XP.
Use a windows rescue floppy to fdisk /mbr (not a linux version of fdisk), or the slightly different syntax for an XP disk (fixmbr ?).
Cant you partition the 80gigs, say give linux about 10-15 gigs worth?
I mean 80 gig is a lot, so why not give the first 60 gigs to XP as NTFS, and then partition the rest for swap and linux file system eg ext3 of a linux install? Might be an idea to leave a small (just a few gigs) as FAT32 so linux can write to XP via that, safely.
