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.

Hi all - My computer has two SATA HDDs in RAID0 mode. The motherboard uses nVidia nForce 4 chipset and an Si3132 RAID controller. There's a Windows XP system in partition C, and I made four Linux partitions in the free space to install Fedora: Partition / ,Partition /usr ,Partition /home in ext3 format, and a SWAP partition.
After the installation, I was told to choose reboot. And later the scrolling initialzation text just stopped, here's the last screen of the ini log:
[HTML]device-mapper: ioctl: 4.11.0-ioctl(2006-10-12)initialised:email@example.com

Booting has failed
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init![/HTML]
I'm completely new to Linux, it looks like the booting sequence somehow failed to file the file system. If it's because of unrecognized RAID drives on my PC, how did it manage to boot from the vmlinuz and initrd both from the RAID?
Problem resolved. The label of the system partition was supposed to be /, but it turned out to be /1 when I checked the HDD with a dedicated utility. I modified the grub menu list and now this thing is working!!
