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 recently dropped my laptop from about chair/seat height. It hit the floor on it's side. Worried I quickly did scandisk and left it. When I came back it had already booted into linux and I forgot about the issue.
Q. How does one look back at previous or recent scandisk logs?
Today when I booted my laptop I noticed the performance very sluggish and not normal. I began to worry about my harddrive issue.
The results of scandisk partition was:
44765122 KB total disk space.
26495516 KB in 3332 files.
1788 KB in 518 indexes.
4 KB in bad sectors.
94818 KB in use by the system.
65536 KB occupied by the log file.
18172996 KB available on disk.
4096 bytes in each allocation unit.
11191280 total allocation units on disk.
4543249 allocation units available on disk.
Windows has finished checking the disk.
Woah! 4KB in bad sectors. I guess the 4KB is unrecoverable. I wonder what files were sitting on top of those bad sectors.
