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.

my installation is kernel 2.6, debian sarge, kde 3.3.
kdar is giving me much grief - largely because there's no debian package. In the end, I got an rpm package from kde-apps and debianized it with alien, and then did a dpkg install.
It seemed to work, to my surprise: there's an icon in the toolbar, all the files seem to be where you'd expect them --- but -- it doesn't fire up, not even when I enter /usr/bin/kdar from the command line, or click on the file name in konqueror.
I get this message in xsessions-errors: "kdar: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".
Funnily enough, this libcrypto thing isn't shown in the list of dependencies when you look at kdar in synaptic. I find some references to it when I google, but it's not debianized, seems v. big, I don't need crypto, and I'm sure it wouldn't work.
I've looked at other backup solutions, but can't fool kdat to copy to my second HD; dar is beyond me.
I looked at the instructions for installing kdar from the .tar, but that also is way beyond my competence.
..any constructive suggestion gratefully received, with thanks in anticipation to the donor(s),
many thanks for the tip - I really feel a bit sheepish, not having discovered this possibility myself.
Konserve in fact seems to be virtually all I want - there just seem a couple of slight inconveniences in that you can only define one source directory per profile, and that you can't order it to backup right now: I'll just have to group my files accordingly, and set the back-up period frequent.
Anyway, I think it will cover me until kdar is debianized.
again thank you..
