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.

He re is my concern:
1) I installed Unbuntu (latest version) on an old machine, from live CD with embedded installation tool.
All was working fine, but this OS requested too much resources
2) I decided to install backtrack3 Hacking magazine version (the latest). Running on live CD, it seems requesting less ressources.
a) Cd started, I ran fdisk, deleted previous file system, create one of 10 Gb.
fdisk shows all is OK.
But df -k shown a partition of 100Mb on had1. Not enough to install BT which reuqire 2.7 Gb Indeed, using BT installer, there's no space disk enough (a bad thing: BT installer does not check or alert).
I tried sevral thing to delete, redimension, mount, umount, various fs type. Nothing, hda1 was always here.
Ok. I decided creating hda1 100Mb with fdisk, and trying to install on another partition.
I created Hda2, fs ext2, or Ext3, or autofs, I modified fstab,...
No way, I got the same message: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cciss/c0d2p1,or too many mounted file systems.
If some one has an idea?
I'm going to go back at home reinstalling Ubuntu and reformatting from then....
