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.

It was just the partition I deleted with fdisk, funnily or not so funnily I was trying to make some room so that i could back up my laptop onto it. I used testdisk to recreate the partition and everythings fixed now, thanks, thats hugely appreaciated.
I know my first post was rather short and lacking in info, but at the time I was just thinking 'Oh shit!'. Simply saying the more info was needed or how have you deleted it would have been enough, comments like '..You won't be helped here simply by saying that you broke something and you need someone to fix it.' just makes you sound like a condescending twat, I read allot of posts from windows users saying that the linux community is like this and in all the years I've read this forum it's the first time I've actually seen it. This forum is here to help people, so help them, don't patronize them or they'll not come back
