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've been happily dualbooting with SuSE 9.1 and XP Pro using GRUB. I had an extra partition, so I decided to test out Vista. I knew full well that MS doesn't play nice with other OSs, but I figured I could go in and fix it myself.
I attempted to boot with a 9.1 CD-ROM, but the boot process blew right by the CD and went into the Win bootloader (which looks like two loaders, one after the other). Checking the BIOS, I confirmed that CD-ROM was first in the boot order. Other CD-ROMS (such as the XP install disk or my Acronis True Image boot CD) DO boot as they should.
I then used the 9.1 install CD #1 to make a set of boot floppies, using rawrite, which came on the CD. Booting to the floppies, I get an error message saying "I'm SUSE Linux module disk 1. I cannot boot. :-(" (yes, the frowny was in the message!).
Is there a way I gen get all three OSs to play nicely? Would I be able to go in and repair GRUB using SuSE 8.2 or Knoppix? Any idvice with the weird double bootloader Windows has come up with?
