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.

How to create a cron file that will regularly perform the following backups:
a. Performs a level 0 backup once per month
b.Performs a level 2 dump one day per week
c.Performs a level 5 dump every day that neither a level 0 nor a level 2 dump is performed.
If not, I'm I close? This is homework, so I don't want a direct answer, just some good guidance
Distribution: Debian, Arch Linux, Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, Suse, Mepis, Redhat, Sayabon, mandrake and android (
Simply put that is a unix machine....
First off computers are far more advanced then needing to use such scripts or small programs to run backups....
Terminal line is important, but there have been thousands of Graphical user programs made to run backups and just about
any computer function.... Furthermore, half the Unix idiot professors are unaware that you can load Linux OS as the
primary shell over the Server and use then linux programs to manage the computer and IBM following will sell and license Linux OS just need to look at there website...
Here is a link to get you started...
Just keep in mind if you are a Computer Net worker or just decided to take a IBM class because you have a degree that requires you to have knowledge of a Unix system this is pretty useless data in the real world....
Most companies use a IBM Server, but not the OS that is either Windows or Novell... In a rare while you might run across As400 and Linux.... Very rare, hospitals use AS400 for billing information and some linux can be found on the east coast such as in North Carolina Red Hat....
Best answer I can give you is the IBM website link....
Most of the data you are looking for is becoming specific and outdated in the larger sense you can know buy a 1 terabyte hard drive and store thousands of programs and millions upon millions of data....
So you figure I could build a Server that has 4 tb of disk space to write to.... That would be an huge space to write to... Furthermore most fortune 500 companies have a segregated system so data is not in one location but shared across the network....
