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.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

I just ran my Ubuntu live cd and tried to mount them without any success :s
Usage: fdisk [-l] [-b SSZ] [-u] device
E.g.: fdisk /dev/hda (for the first IDE disk)
or: fdisk /dev/sdc (for the third SCSI disk)
or: fdisk /dev/eda (for the first PS/2 ESDI drive)
or: fdisk /dev/rd/c0d0 or: fdisk /dev/ida/c0d0 (for RAID devices)
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mount /dev/hda1
mount: can't find /dev/hda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mount /dev/hda2
mount: can't find /dev/hda2 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mount /dev/hda5
mount: can't find /dev/hda5 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
and for the second operation you mentioned.. i dont even now how to execute it .
thanks sir, doing well up to now, did what you say and got this after the <cat /boot/grub/menu.lst> command.
# Start GRUB global section
#color light-gray/blue black/light-gray
# End GRUB global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Linux on (/dev/hda1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 ro vga=normal
# Linux bootable partition config ends
title --- For help press 'c', type: 'help'
title --- For usage examples, type: 'cat /boot/grub/grub.txt'
root (hd0)bash-3.1# cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
what should I do now ?
edit : when I open the file with
after having further problems with it, I re-installed the PCLinuxOS and chose for the Lilo Boot Loader this time, and it runs !! Finally.
I had never had problems , back when I was using slackware with my Lilo, and on the same time, I've had GRUB problems on my Ubuntu... so what my conclusion is, is that LILO is more stable than GRUB (simple observation )
