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.

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.

Hello - Somehow my init file got switched to number 1 and it won't even get into a command prompt it just goes to this no more processes entering single user mode....is there anyway i can change it back to 5? thanks!
it would help if you'd fill in your user info so we could see what distro your using. If it's a simple one like MDK, FC just re-run the installer and pick upgrade, let it "skim" over the install changing back that and anything else you may have changed,It will not affect current progs, or setting you may have installed. If not boot with a live cd and edit the file with vi (vi /etc/inittab).
Ok im in knoppix live and i can't get to my inittab file i go into my harddrive with it and then to etc and then there isn't an inittab file in there theres only a init.d file thats in italics...any suggestions?? thanks!
