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.

This is my grub.conf( from /boot/grub/, /etc/grub.conf points to the same )
I've one question. I wanted to remove the section between /* and */. I
understand from your suggesstion and the note in the same file, that I
don't have to rerun grub.
But I think I need to change the value of 'default' to 1 correct. I believe that
it starts with zero( so now its points to Windows 2000 to boot into by default
and which I would like to keep the same ).
So editing is all I've to do, correct. Thanks for the guidance...

# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,10)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda12
# initrd /initrd-version.img

u may edit your grub.conf file if u know what u r doing if not then . To be safe itīs not a bad idea to keep older kernels on your system I have normaly 1/2 older version just in case. If all kernel upgrades where dine via rpm then u may use the cmd rpm -e kernel-<kernel verion> this will remove kernel as well as the menu entries for u.
