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 download the crossover platform and it looked liked it was going to work great. Then it came up an error saying it was out fo "Free Space' in the /opt/crossover directory I created.
Now I screwed up my Linux and have to reinstall everything which only takes me 20-25 minutes.
Problem I have is HOW do increase the space in directory I create so I won't have this happen again.
Space is not a problem I have given Linux 20 GB of room to play in.
Can someone help me here.
It was so close to being where I wanted it to be.......wimmpper
If you ran out of free space, and linux has 20 GB of space, I'd suspect that this has to do with partitioning. Did you partition your harddrive with fdisk, or did your install do it automatically? I had a similar problem before when I partitioned my harddrive for the first time.
Ok I have now got Linux backup and running again.
This time however I made sure my / has 2 gb /swap has 2gb and /usr over 16 gb.
Hopefully this will correct any problems I had.
Thanks to all who helped out here.

SWAP 2gb! waste of space... I wish i had two gb to waste on swap. Swap will be more than happy with 250MB, especially if you have more than 128 RAM.
/ is 3-5GB, then if you want /home 2gb and /usr the rest,
For next time
