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 have slack installed on my primary harddrive which is hda and windows xp on my second HD which is hdb. Slack boots up prefectyl. When I choose Windows, Lilo just says, boot windows and thats it. Windows isnt for me and its annoying going to the bios switching off my primary HD just my relatives use windows.
