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! I had install redhat 9.0 in my secondary harddrive and now whenever I log in ,it is always in shell or dos and I couldn't find the command to jump into any graphical desktop.like when I use mandrake 9 ,I could just type kde or gnome and the desktop would automatically open.When I install redhat 9 ,I did install quite a few software .I install all the graphical destop and etc.... but now I am unable to do anything after install more than 2.5 gb of software pack .
Was the shell's command from mandrake is different from redhat or was it I that didn't know how to.But when I was loading it did show graphical booter .

Thanks I'll try that ,I can't edit the file .It said that the permission is denied .ever since I install RH9 ,I haven't add any new users yet.So I am working as the root .but it ok ,i'll try the starx .
When ever I try to edit the /etc/inittab in root in bash shell or gnome(I log in by tying startx).I coudn't do it because it said permission is denies .how can it be !I am the root and I haven't add any user yet!
I don'r know but I manage to edit it in Gnome desktop using kediter or some textediter .Bu now I need to make a boot disk in RH and can you tell me how and please can you tell me how do I fix linux installing like scandisk in MS and check file something like that?
I got another problem ,it that when I install RH9 I couln't install it with my own pc for that gzlib ,crc comprassion error ( I don't know what is that).So I took out my secondary harddisk and install it in my sister computer.But my sister computer couldn't support two HD at once so I set this one as primary .The installing went smoothly,but when I rejoin in my PC as secondary everything work except for the part that this RH couldn't find swapt partition in HDA3 .Course of it couldn't find it because it tis not in HDA(windowxp) anymore(I thinks).It is in HDB3(again,I think
).So can anyone tell me what seem to be the problem?and of course I got two sound card (on board and sb!live surround sound 5.1).And as everyone would have done it ,I use SB! Live but when I change my primary audio device and make a audio testing,it's working file until I try to open mp3 audio from CD .No sound produce.
