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 am trying to install Oracle ERP 11i (11.5.8) using MAXTOR FIREWIRE 200GB disk. Software Redhat 9.0. Hardware Compaq 3000, dual processor; 490MHz; 500 MB RAM.
Everything looked like working fine (after setting LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1, system was hanging before). But, there are 2 potential show-stoppers / problems.
1) to install oracle 11i software , there are nearly 18 CDs. System HANGS soon after the 2nd CD completes. It should prompt me for 3 rd CD. It just hangs.
2) so I have to reboot system and do everyhting all over. like cleaning the mess that previous installation created.
Sometimes, in this process , while mounting FIREWIRE disk, system hangs. the command that i give, after loading modules thru modprobe, is
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt/fire
Can somebody help me to understand whole thing? has anybody successful installed or used FIREWIRE disk for any major software? I am just using FIREWIRE disk as storage.
Are there any enviroment variables that should be set in order to work with firewire?
I've pulled files off of an iPod (mac filesystem) over firewire on my machine. This was awhile ago, but I do remember having to reboot after a kernel panic as soon as I accessed the drive. I modprobed a whole bunch of modules and I didn't have any problems after that -- the device appeared, I could mount it, and everything worked fine. I think the key module was sbp2, but I could be mistaken...
