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 have a dual boot system with Linux and Win2k.
Last night I was testing a TV recorder card (under win2k) and I let it fill all of drive F:, which is NOT a bootable drive (it's a FAT32, for media stuff).
It all worked fine and the card just stopped recording after it filled that drive.
I turned off the computer later and in the morning switched it on again, but to my surprise the boot manager (GRUB) displayed only "error 16" and then halted. Error 16 means that there is an
"Inconsistent filesystem structure - This error is returned by the filesystem code to denote an internal error caused by the sanity checks of the filesystem structure on disk not matching what it expects. This is usually caused by a corrupt filesystem or bugs in the code handling it in GRUB."
I made a google search and saw that the same happened to someone else, too ... Virus damage is excluded - the comp wasn't even in touch with 'net.
Anyway, I don't have a clue how to solve this.
I'm no expert, so all i tried was to connect the drive as a slave to another computer, but that didn't work - the drive seemed not to be formatted.
I guess it would be enough to delete something from the F drive, if there isn't any permanent solution ...
