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.

Distribution: Fedora 3,4- Ubuntu 6.06 to 8.10, Gentoo and Arch
changing file system to ext3
when I write command moun I recieve this message:
/dev/hdb8 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hdb1 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hdb5 on /media/hd/e type vfat (rw)
/dev/hdb7 on /media/hd/g type vfat (rw)
/media/hd/e on /home/mohammad/Hard_Drive/E_partition type none (rw,bind)
/media/hd/f on /home/mohammad/Hard_Drive/F_partition type none (rw,bind)
/media/hd/g on /home/mohammad/Hard_Drive/G_partition type none (rw,bind)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
but I made a mistake accidentally and destroyed my drive f which was fat32 for windows XP.
when my computer starts it says that it is unable to mount hdb6 (drive F). it says bad type, bad option, bad super block or too many mounted file systems.
I want to change my hdb6 to ext3. I have nothing in hdb6 to be lost.
"df -kah" displays all mounted disks and free/busy space on them. To mount disk automatic on boot you need to add it in /etc/fstab. Line about this partition should looks like :
/dev/hdb5 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
What is -o auto ? I have never heard about sth like this
