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 recently upgraded my aging non-udma 10GB IBM hard drive to a shiny Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 200GB ATA-100 8MB Cache and reinstalled Debian testing. However using the default settings dmesg spits out lots of
using hdparm anything mdma2 or below works fine, but above it doesn't like.
I''ve tried 2.4.26-1-k7 and a 2.6.6 kernel and two different IDE cables (a 10cm long rounded cable rated at ata100, and a standard 80-conductor flat cable the exact same kind that is used with the other 2 ata100 disks on my raid controller)
The pc is a tbird 800 on an abit kt7-raid (vt82c686a so ata66) with 256mb pc100 , intel1000 NIC and soundblaster live platinum, and an ancient s3 agp card.
