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.

how can i make rest of 2GB as linux partition so it will be show while typing df -h
Only mounted partitions will be showed in df. If you have two 2 GB partition then you have to format the other one (using mkfs utility for example) and mount it. But if you have a one 4 GB partition but df says that it's 2 GB then there is a problem :-) Which one?
