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 am trying to configure 'Liquid Weather' on the desktop. So far I have some things that are showing ok. When I try and edit the script I have got a bit stuck, the following files when I look in my root dir seem to be in a different place to where the script indicates.
mountpoint /home /mnt/hda1 hdb
also can't find
networks eth0 /sbin/ip addr show eth0
My questions is if - when I find these files, should I copy them to the location of 'Liquid Weather' to get it to run.
Could you please post a copy of (parts of) the script, and point at the faulty line(s)?
when I find these files
Exactly which files? `mountpoint /home /mnt/hda1 hdb'?
There probably is no file called `mountpoint'--that's just the technical term for `the directory in which you mount <foo>' (= "foo's mountpoint").
now `hdb' is probably only the correct path to the file you want if you're in /dev;
but having /dev/hda1 mount at /home -- that makes sense.
Unfortunately I don't have the context--so please post the script as I said.
