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 have RedHat Linux7.1 Installed. It was working fine. I have switched off the system by mistake, now it is not booting only. It stops Booting after " Setting hostname..............OK".
It wont boot at all please tell me where is the problem. Before it was connected to Net. now not.
It is verry critical system I need data on that.
Try to run it with
(from LILO, or failsafe; should be the same result). It won't run all start scripts (among them setting the hostname) and you'll have a chance to get into your system. Now you can change the hostname.
The only thing is that I think it's not a hostname problem. But try it. If it still doesn't work, write.
I have try to boot single user mode, Still it is not booting it stops after Setting hostname.......OK, It won't load USB filesystem, I have just removed 64 MB RAM, before it was 256MB, and also I had tried by putting RAM back, But no use, I have not made any changes to USB part.
If you switched of your pc without shutting down you may have damaged your filesystem. I do not know what fs you are using I will guess ext2. If you can boot from a recovery disk then
assuming your system is on /dev/hda1 try:-
This with luck may fix things for you.
Journaling fs such as ext3 and reiserfs do not have this problem
