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.

Originally posted by Tinkster I'd say Reiser, too, and which ever journaling system
you go for, if you have any small partitions, use ext2 on
those, the journal DOES take up space (and no, it's not
linear in size ;}).
I use ext3 on a 3GB partition, I haven't noticed a lack of space.
How much "space" are we talkin' here?
I think this also has to do with the OS you install. If i recall (it's been a while), redhat doesn't support reiserfs, so it'd be a pain to get a reiserfs on your system. On the otherhand slackware's default is reiserfs. You can even use JFS or XFS. I personally have found reiserfs to be quite stable and fast, and gives much better performance than ext3. I've yet to try XFS or JFS, and really have no intension to simply because reiser works for me. I can't wait for reiserfs4 to be incorporated into the kernel; i want to see what all this hype around it is about!
