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.

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 facing some problems with my wireless , when i run some software like wifi_radar and wpa_supplicant, my linux hung.
so i thought its may be some damaged files cause the problem .
i just run "fsck" , it show me that my linux partition in mounted /dev/hda2 (i have windows on /dev/hda1)
and then i reboot , and i cant enter my linux (stuck in the grub).
I boot from knoppix CD, it show my widows partition is ok, but it cant mount my linux partition.
it give me this error message:
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified.
I boot fedora CD, and it show me my /hda2 as Linux native without mounted point.
/dev/hda2 Linux native
any advice ?
sorry for my English

You did not run fsck while /dev/hda2 was mounted, did you? The best way is to boot your system up from a rescue disk (knoppix works fine) and then fun fsck on your /dev/hda2 without mounting it. Do not run fsck on mounted filesystems, it may indeed break them! If you need to check your root filesystem (which is of course always mounted when your system is up), you can use:
Sorry to add to such an old thread, but I thought that it should be added that you should >>never<< run fsck on a mounted file system, always use the rescue mode of your install CD or something like Knoppix as was suggested earlier.
