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 have just downloaded Incognito & used the on-cd script to create a bootable usb stick.
When creating the persistent home, I select encrypted, and hidden. It creates the encrypted home volume fine, but then generates the following error message:
modprobe: WARNING: Error inserting padlock_aes (/lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r7/kernel... (it timed out here, so thats all I could read)
OK - now I'm puzzled (really puzzled!) I have done this at least 6 times this afternoon, on 2 different computers, and it's failed every time. I register on this forum to report the bug - and go through the steps one more time to write down the error messages - and it works!!!
So... what has happened the previous 6 (or more) times is that the creation of the hidden volume fails. I am asked to enter my containing volume password (which I was not asked to do this time) and it generates an error message which I don't remember - and I'm not deleting the successful one to try to reproduce it again!
The only difference seems to be the time I waited whilst copying the error message down. Could it be that the script proceeds before the volume creation is complete?
Anyway, I'm happy now! But maybe it's something to look into for the next release, so I'll still post this.
The stick is a 4Gb one, and I tried to use most of it first. My final (successful) attempt was 2000Mb with 1500Mb hidden. I don't know how long I had to wait - how long does that error message sit before timing out? That's how long I did wait.
