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.

Unixfreak, you say you wanted to delete something from rc.local. Other people in this thread have told you how to get to signle user mode, and my post was explaining how to delete a line from a text file using vi. If this system is mission critical to your business, and you can't figure these directions out, I strongly suggest that you follow Tinkster's advice and hire a Linux consultant to help you with this.
I'm sorry that you're having trouble, but on a slightly different angle, and at the risk of stating the obvious, for future reference I would recommend that you not make changes in your company's Production environment without testing them first on a non-Production machine. Performing experiments on a Production machine should be a major red-flag, particularly if the change you are making is new territory. Again, sorry you are having trouble, but good luck getting it sorted out. -- J.W.
