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 am dual booting obsd 3.4 and mdk9.1 on a toshiba sat.
While trying to configure X on bsd I managed to lock it up
and had an unclean shutdown. I finally got it to boot again
but /dev/rwd0h is full of bad blocks. It won't do an automatic
fsck and tells me to do it manually. I have worn out two fingers
hitting y and enter with no end in sight! Any help appreciated.
Thanks for the replies guys. I have run fsck several times but I keep getting a warning when I
reboot about a dirty file system at /home. Something like: DIRECTORY ?: EMPTY BLOCKS
Adjust length(yn). No matter how I answer it I always end up with a message to rerun fsck.
I think I will probably just do a reinstall since I need the practice anyway. I googled softdep
and it looks promising chort thanks for the tip.
