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 just installed Slackware 9.0 on my machine, and I think I have made a big mistake. I installed LILO to the MBR, and when I boot my machine, it goes into LILO, and the only option I have for booting is Linux! If someone can help it would be very much appreciated, because I had some very important stuff on my Windows 2000 drive. I know the data is still there, but I just do not know how to access it. I would really like a response as to how to get LILO to recognize that I also have Windows 2000 running. Windows 2000 is running on a *seperate* hard drive than my Slackware installation. Thanks, any response will be helpful!!
Thanks everyone for the help. Unfortunately something got so screwed up the hda1 scrambled itself. Oh well, i didnt have anything important on there anyway...and I was running this thing as a learning experience.
I will do a clean install of windows 2k pro, and start from scratch. Thanks again to all!!
Have you made use of the liloconfig utility? Just enter "liloconfig"
at a shell prompt, and then carefully learn to use this handy little tool. One of the options is to create a boot option to a DOS (Win) partition.
