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 suse linux (SLES9) installed as dual boot along with windows xp..now i am experiencing space problems for windows and want to remove suse from my machine and allocate that partition too to windows..how do i go about it?
1) Insert the Windows install CD (2000 or XP) -- let it start initial load
2) enter 'R' for Windows Recovery when prompted (I think it's 'R' but you should get an option Repair / Recover or Install Windows --been a while since I've done this.
3) Start recovery console -- you'll get a prompt Login to window.
4) at the C> prompt (or wherever you've got Wndows installed) type FIXMBR
5) re-boot --system will now reboot into Windows -- no need to re-install.
Now you can delete / resize partitions.
If your machine came with Windows pre-installed it might ask for an admin password when using the Windows XP CD.
If that happens and you can't remember the password use a Windows 2000 CD -- it doesn't ask for a password.
