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 relatively new to the linux o/s.I installed suse 9.3 on a small hard drive.After a while I got a larger drive and was attempting to transfer everything on the smaller drive to the larger one and ran into some difficulties. Something did not work right and I read somewhere to put cd1 and reboot to rescue mode.I disconnected the larger drive and tryedto get the first drive to work properly before going further along.Now I get these messages along with several others but I feel these are probably most helpful in the diagnosis.Now when I start the system I see the normal startup screen,then part on it turns to the monochrome color and displays a bunch of text like when you hit the esc button in the beginning to see more information.Some of the lines are.
usbcore registered new driver
via_ircc:unsupported module,tainting kernel
start unicode mode
fsck failed for at least one filesystem (not /)
Please repair manually and reboot
The root filesystem is already mounted read-write
Attention:Only Control-D will reboot the system in this maintenance mode.
Shutdown or reboot will not work
If anyone could help I would be most appreciative.Thanks and have a nice day.
Thanks for your help but i solved the problem.I was looking at a book that showed all the commands.I just typed "su" then "startx".I booted into the GUI took what I needed off of the hard drive via k3b and reformated it.I then installed the OS on the other hard drive and all the files i needed.Thanks again.
