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.

AAAAAAAAAAGH! i had win 2k on my pc then i put fedora core 2 on. no problem. then, after a while, i tried to put Suse personal 9.1 on. the first time, i could not boot fedora. then, i reinstalled but kept the suse bootloader off, thinking i could then configure the fedora GRUB to recognize suse. instead, i got a grub> command prompt. AAGH! so i reinstalled and let it use it's own bootloader. AAGH! no fc2. damn! please give me your
install and configure GRUB through suse...and add fedora to the suse GRUB...for whatever reason, thats the only way i got my multi-boots to work, was when i finally configured GRUB through suse and added the other distros afterwards.
Try to boot SuSE from the Boot disk and, yes, maybe the rescue function will set up the bootloader correctly. Otherwise use the 'boot from harddisk' option and re-install grub using yast.
I would recommend to start with a working SuSE grub.
As far as I understood, you could get this working with SuSE and Windows, but not recognizing Fedora?
The best would be to post your /boot/grub/menu.lst and the output of fdisk -l (or a description of your partition table with information what is on which partition). Then we might figure out how the entry in menu.lst should look like.
