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 totally new to Linux, i have installed Enterprise Server AS v4 successfully and all appears to be working fine except the tape drive..although it may be working and i just don't know where to look to find out..haha..the drive is working in that i can see it during the bootup of the server during the SCSI inquiry on the card...but once i get logged into Linux i have no clue...i found the Hardware Browser and i don't see the tape drive listed there...i am not even sure if it is seeing the SCSI card that it is plugged into or not either....it is plugged into an IBM Ultra320 SCSI card and the tape drive is an IBM DLT VS160....the server is a an IBM xseries 236....i installed the Amanda Tape backup system that i found on the CD's that came with the Linux distrubution it but after it installs i can find no menu item referencing it on the X windows desktop or in the Applications + Actions menus at the top...so now i am at a loss..so hopefully someone can assist or point me in the right direction...thanks
Tape drive devices are /dev/st0, /dev/st1... & /dev/nst0, /dev/nst1....
Look at the output of lspci. This will display the chipset information for the SCSI card. Post the output. You can look at the output of the command lsmod to see if you see anything that looks like the SCSI controller. You should see several SCSI modules too. Make sure the SCSI tape module st is loading.
