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 was doing a check of one of the filesystems on a server and noticed its free space was down to ten percent. I went to the filesystem to see what subdirectories were taking up the most space. Upon checking the directories, I did not see any that would appear to be so large they would leave only a small amount of space available. I also checked for hidden files and did not see any that would cause the same problem. What else should I check for to determine why so much diskspace is being used in the one fileystem?
Here are some particulars:
OS: Red Hat 8.0
Filesystem: /dev/sda5 = 1.0 gigabytes. No other filesystems on this mountpoint.
do you have 2gb ram? to me it looks like your swap partition is using 456mb or so.
what is the output of 'df -h'? and the output of 'free -m', again? and the output of 'du -hs /'? what does your /etc/fstab file look like?
