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 use ClarkConnect 3.2 Home edition as a server for my FLAC files. It came with SlimServer so it seemed like a good choice. A couple of weeks ago it stopped working, so I plugged in a monitor and saw there was a problem with eth0, as well as the following error messages during boot:
Bad format on line 2 of /etc/fstab
Mounting local filesystems: mount point 1 does not exist [failed]
Determining IP info for eth0 [failed]
I put in the boot disk and entered 'rescue'
I copied all the messages as I went along. Here they are:
The rescue environment will now attempt to find your Linux installation and mount it under the directory /mnt/sysimage. You can then make any changes required to your system. If you want to proceed with this step choose 'continue'. You can also choose to mount your file systems read-only instead of read-write by choosing 'Read-Only'.
If for some reason this process fails you can choose 'Skip' and this step will be skipped and you will go directly to a command shell.
The following file systems for your Linux system were not unmounted cleanly. Would you like to mount them anyway? /dev/hdb1
Your system has been mounted under /mnt/sysimage.
Press <return> to get a shell. If you would like to make your system the root environment, run the command chroot /mnt/sysimage.
I then typed EXIT and the system did a reboot and I got these messages:
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/mnt/backup'
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/tmp'
After that I can enter the root password for maintenance.
I did some google searching on that, which is how I found this forum, however I am afraid to do anything in case I make it worse. I did find a thread that had some interesting info about editing /etc/fstab, but I'm not sure how to do that or what to do to fix the error.
I need some instructions on how to edit fstab and what to edit it to. Can anyone help? I have three hard disks (primary master, primary slave and secondary master)
