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.

like say how we use to have dos, then windows 3.1 or something on it, something similar, but instead of dos, linux, and instead of windows 3.1, windows 98, or 200, or nt,
are you trying to say run linux as the command line and windows as the gui on top of it? like when windows ran on top of dos??
well, if that is what your implying, that isn't going to work. to get windows running under linux, you have to use some sort of emulator like win4lin or Wine... or vmWare.
just a thought, I've never even attempted to use wine or anything but, you could probally get explore.exe or at least progman.exe (yes they do include progman.exe with win9x and probally 2000 and ME too in the /windows/system directory i believe). But anyways maybe you could run one of those 2 windows shells over wine and at least have the window shell to look at...
