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 getting error while booting the linux operating system.
The superblock could not be read or doesnot describe a correct ext2 filesystems. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystems (and not swap or vfs or something else), than the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
*An error occured during filesystem check.
**Dropping you to shell;the system will reboot.
***when you leave the shell.
***Warning -- SELINUX is active
***Disabling security enforcement for the system recovery.
***Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.
give the root password for maintenance.
Please help me out on this! and also is there any command for Forcefully installation of linux during such error occured.
I faced almost the same situation like this. And at that point of time i couldn't find any way to get out of this. This is because your HDD has either gone bad or sectors are corrupted. In my case i gave the root password for maintenance. After the maintenance it was all ok, for me.
