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.

Right now when i do a df all i get is:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
279736320 28065536 237460944 11% /
/dev/sda1 101086 15603 80264 17% /boot
none 1037980 0 1037980 0% /dev/shm
The problem is that i need to set quotas on /home and /var/mail. I figured that the best way to do this is to create labels in fstab like /boot has for /home and /var so that i can then enable quotas on them and they will show up in a df as their own entries. When i edit my fstab to look like this:
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/var /var ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 3
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 4
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
and reboot, i get this error:
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/home'
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/var'
Is there something I am forgetting to do when i add a new label of am i going about this the wrong way???
