How to uninstall one copy of Linux - PLease read - URGENT
I have just started using Linux. I have a dual boot system with WinXP pro and Red Hat Linux 7.3. I was getting some problem in GRUB (it was not showing WinXP) and so I tried to change my boot loader information by reinstalling Linux. Now it seems that my system has two copy of Linux!!! Sounds very strange but it seems true. The reason I think that the system has two copy of Linux is that the GRUB (boot loader) shows three choices - two of them are Linux and one is WinXP. I want to uninstall one copy so that I have WinXP and Linux (one copy) only. Any help?
Also, please suggest me a good book on learning Linux.

In a text editor (make sure you log in as root first, and be careful not to change anything else). You will see 3 entries that are similar. They will contain something like "image=Linux 2.4.27" and a few lines after it.
Just add '#' signs (without the apostrophes) to the beginnings of the lines that contain the second Linux entry.
When you're done you should see something like this:
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.0-0.43.6 label=linux initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.0-0.43.6.img read-only root=/dev/hda5 #image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.0-0.43.6 # label=linux # initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.0-0.43.6.img # read-only # root=/dev/hda5 other=/dev/hda1 label=dos
