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.

When I try to start my Fedora 3 (with LVM) I get the following error .
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel <version> ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quit
Uncompressing Linux, Ok, booting the kernel
Red Hat nash version 4.1.18 started
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2
2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00"now active
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - inode=507905, block=1015810
mount: error 5 mounting none
And from there it is just haning there.
I am no expert and have no clue what I can do to repair this , I got some data on there that I realy must have.
THe problem started yesterdat, while I was working, I clicked on the bar to start my email program and I got the error that my mail program was not installed.
I then tried some other things but nothing was starting, I checked the messsage file (/var/log/ ) but nothing has been writting to this file for the last 30 minutes, Then I did something realy stupid, I rebooted
I tried to boot from FC3 DVD and the boot was mounted without a problem ( I think because this is outside LVM ) but the rest gives me problems.
Is there some tool I can run to recover from this.
