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.

linux:/mnt # df -h /dev/hdd
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 167G 130G 29G 82% /
If you see above, I'm using 66G but df reads it as 130G.
The same anomaly is occuring on my /dev/hda to the extent that I can't copy files over to that drive, and I KNOW there's plenty of room.
Is there some sort of cleanup I can run. I have moved large files, in excess of 40G back and forth between these drives and I've got the funny feeling that Suse is not cleaning up after the moves. FYI, I use dd to move files, not cp, and then I delete the original. And yes, I am sure that the Trash is empty.
