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 assembled a system around Asus A8N mb and AMD Athlon 64FX CPU and still use it after five years. Operating systems; Fedora, Ubuntu, XP. About everything bad one could think of has happened to my system. I would be pleased to share my experience and learn about yours. Les
My first attempts at a raid root system failed in that the raid was created but failed to boot because raids were not being assembled by initrd.
I am having another attempt by following this procedure: http://www.texsoft.it/index.php?c=ha...d-squeeze&l=it
It takes a while to assemble raid6 arrays ... be patient

Honestly as a Slackware user I'm very well skilled in this trait and can easily manage my own system, but what about automated package management distributions? Sure you can have a system hold your hand and walk you through in baby steps, but what about that rare case when a dependency is not resolved by the package management system because the package is obscure enough not to have a mainstream dependency file? What then? Honestly, I have ran across some of these. I've had to often do hour long...
I'm getting a dark feeling...I may have to remaster the original CD.
Installing GNU tar, because the Busybox tar does'nt always work, depends on...dependencies. These need to come first.
The plan is to set everything up and master whatever result is there to a CD. In the same run, I could set up the /etc/resolv.conf TTYLinux does not have. And append to the rc.conf to get networking set up in one clean swoop...
Oops! I was messing with my N900, installing the power kernel and doing a spot of light overclocking. This had the effect of breaking the fcam camera drivers. I tried to fix that by installing the latest drivers from the development repositories. This pulled in the very latest power kernel which seems to have resulted in a reboot loop situation. :-( I'm hoping that a kernel only reflash will put it all back to normal...
