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.

Hey all. I have a huge problem with my RH8 server. I installed the stupid kernel updates along with some other updates through the "up2date" program, then I rebooted and now my system is totally fu#$ed.
When I reboot....it blows through with about 15 errors similar to
/var/log/wtmp : no such file or directory....
I says that there is no such file or directory with a lot of /var files
Then it proceeds to hang on "starting system logger" for about 5 minutes, then finally it gives me a text login which has 8 bash errors after I login. I cannot access some directories also...such as usr/local/apache2....it says it does not exist.
I have one hard drive in the system.
I rebooted again to the rescue cd and ran fsck /dev/hda1...through 7 and it found a lot of errors and asked to fix them. I said yes....rebooted and I get the same damn thing.
Is there any hope? or did linux just poop out on me for no reason?
