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.

so I upgraded my Slack 7 machine to the new ver 8.1 after decided to use my two small dos partirions and install something my co-workers could handle like dos and maybe windows later, this is where I messed it up. I had the slack working just fine configured my new mouse in KDE and everything was smooth. I booted of a dos disk formated the dos partition and then installed the os dos 6.22, Now when I boot the machine it takes me straight into dos and dosen't ask me about booting to slackware or anything just straight Dos. I know I didn't kill the slackware because I can boot off of a floppy and everything is still there. How can I get back to my LILO loader short of doing a reinstall....
TYPED THAT AND NO CHANGE SAME THING HAPPENS boots to dos only, never even acts like the Linux partition is there. when I type that command it shows me that everything runs great linux is the active partition and dos is the second
Problem solved. I ran 'liloconfig' and told it to write the file to the MBR instead of the root even though it's not the safest place to store it I figured that dos might of overwritten it and that was the prob.
sorry chris I didn't realize it meant even in different forums.
