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.

Newb here, I have Linux Red Hat Enterprise 4.0 running as my mail server and I am getting errors that I am out of disk space. For example if I try and drop a file on the desktop I get an error that there is no enough space available. I recently deleted some old RPM packages from the Update folder and uninstalled openoffice as this server is not used for anything but my mail server, and I still get this error. If I open the file system it says 0 bytes available. I'm not sure how to tell how much space is available on the partition or if its configured somehow as to only allow a certain amount of available space for certain folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated
You could use 'df -h' from the cli which will identify the space on the disks in human readable format. You could then see where space can be recovered by deletion of files that are no longer necessary.
