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 had some problems recently with my box.When it is on over night it usually doesn't work anymore in the morning.All I get is the desktop or a black screen.
Today it finally wouldn't boot anymore - filesystem corrupt.
/dev/hda2 ext3 debian
/dev/hda5 ext2 data
/dev/hda6 ext2 gentoo
It was running debian with all filesystems mounted.Deb wouldn't boot anymore but gentoo did just fine.Fixed the partition from there.
Now I got data missing on hda2 - don't know how much yet - working on that.
Anyway - you guys figure I have a problem with this drive or something else is screwed up?
Can't get anything out of the logs the box was doing nothing at all according to the logs.
Hmm - wonder if your power is fluctuating? If your voltages get too low, screwy things could definitely happen. Also with spikes. I got a line filter for my system and was very surprised that is usually just barely within spec or just below.
