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 installed, configured and networked ( DHCP) RedHat Enterprise through my VMWare image and successfully created and prepared a new partition for my Oracle 10G installation.
This was done adding in a new disk in VMWare and executing the following commands....
fdisk /dev/sdb -- and partition it as you need
tune2fs -j /dev/sdb1
mount /dev/sdb1 /mount_point
I then updated my fstab and hey presto I now had my newfilesystem !
(Was starting to get excited here! )
I then downloaded 10G and most of the necessary packages that are required by Orace but ran into an Xserver issue which wouldn't let me open the display....
After a good deal of researching I managed to find out that it was the result of the display not being exporting properly.
Was sorted by issuing the following command.
xhost + localhost
(For some reason, DISPLAY=192.XXX.XX.X; export DISPLAY didn't work ! Also tried many other combinations but didn't work)
I then decided to transfer my oracle packages but.......what do ya know, the bloody CDROM drive wouldn't mount so tried editing my /etc/fstab............BUT ACCIDENTILY quit out of it with the 1st 2 letters of the 1st line (which unfortunatly is / slice) ommited.....so now, when starting up it says ....
checking root filesystem
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory BEL=/: ( U might guess by now the full word should be LABEL !!!)
And then it goes into maintenance mode. I then enter the root p/w but I cannot edit the /etc/fstab as it is in Readonly mode.....
I have tried su'ing to root and changing the permissions on the file but still cannot edit....I cant seem to get into single user mode or boot from CDROM either....... I'm getting REALLY, REALLY FRUSTRATED with this as I have put so much time into preparing it and now all my hard work seems to have gone to waste............
CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP - Would really appreciate it.
