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.

Ok, so let's say, hypothetically of course, that I did something stupid like.. oh.. mkreiserfs the wrong partition. Would it be possible to recover data from that partition? Let's say I haven't written anything to it either...
And let's say I tried reiserfsck --rebuild-tree on another partion, and now one it's really broken. Would there be any way to fix it?
Thank you very much.. I'll be sure to hold onto this information just in case a friend of a friend of mine happens to run into a situation like this!
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
hmmm, are you sure you didn't do this to yourself? i'll probably be corrected, but i'd say that person would be sol, but then again it might be possible depending on how much money you are willing to spend to get the data back, as there are proffessional data recovery services that could give it a go for a fee
And thanks.. I used to be on LNO, way back in the day when Sensei was in charge. Haven't really been hanging around Linux BB's lately though.. haven't had the need, since I haven't had the time to mess anything up too bad.
