comment No CentOS Windows 8 GRUB Options on Restart
@jw013 How do I check which partition Windows 8 is on? fdisk -a says Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB. (this is the total size of my harddrive). Device Boot /dev/sda1 Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary. Disk /dev/mapper/volgroup-lv_root: 47.8 GB. Disk /dev/mapper/volgroup-lv_swap: 3959 MB. No sign of Windows 8.

comment No CentOS Windows 8 GRUB Options on Restart
I did exactly that when I dual booted BackTrack 4 with Windows XP: Windows XP was already installed and when I inserted the BT disk, it set up everything for me and GRUB works fine with BT and Win XP. However, with Windows 8, I first booted Win 8, shrank my C drive (leaving the remaining unallocated space for my CentOS install), and then rebooted into the BIOS, disabled secure boot (but left boot type set to UEFI because the "legacy boot" option did not allow my system to boot at all), set HDD as first boot, restarted, and then created swap space and installed CentOS on the remaining space.

Thanks for the reply. I'm just stating exactly what I see on the GRUB screen. When I click Other, it takes me to a blank screen and nothing happens after that.

comment Is here an editor for linux terminal like there is for MS-DOS?
You can try either Vim or Emacs. I prefer Emacs because its a little more intuitive than Vim, but I use both and they are both great. Also read Learning the Vi and Vim Editors and GNU Emacs manual

comment Recommended reading to better understand Unix/Linux internals
I am currently following Matt Might's advice in his article, What Every Computer Science Major Should Know. He recommended The Unix Programming Environment by Kernighan and Pike, Linux Server Hacks, UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook by Nemeth, Synder, Hein and Whaley, Linux Kernel Development by Love, and Unix Network Programming by Stevens, Fenner and Rudoff.
