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.

Well, MS believes there should be no other filesystems than Windows-flavored. If Windows could see any other filesystems, they would not only be condoning, but supporting dual-booting. Das is verboten.
About the only way XP could do anything to Linux would be to either reclaim the MBR, or destroy the Linux partition outright. To do that would run the risk of harming the Windows partition. Not only would this be bad for Windows, it would be bad for MS by leading to lawsuits in this litigious-crazy country.
these are just rumors.. we use dual boots all the time and nothing has happened.. MS does nothing to the dual boots..
what MS does when u connect thru inet is check the pirated copies of windows and if found, it starts destroying them by sending codes which slow down the system so much that evantually u just have to reload the OS .. (this might be another rumor)
are you sure, you didn't mistake the ms xbox patch that will fix the bug that allowed linux apps to run on the xbox through their xbox update service that automatically connects you to when you connect to an xbox server? as far as i know, that is true.
Ahhh.... I have a 3rd party utility that allows XP to read and write to my ext2/3 partitions from NTFS.
It could screw up the Linux side because it mounts the Linux partitons as the D:\
When I forget to unmount Linux after working on it from Windows I find some interesting things written to /. Sometimes it's new temp directory, sometimes is gibberish. I can't see them from Windows with the setting I have on, but when I reboot into RH 8.0, they're there.
So..... if you were using this utility and certain circumstances arise.... something could get screwed up.
Most likely you don't have to worry about it... I do though.
