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'm sorry, but I can't think how to look this up in a man. If I add a hard drive to my Red Hat 8 system, how do I get it to recognize it? I thought it would show up in Disk Management and all I would have to do is mount it. It isn't there. I can't find it with fdisk either, but my BIOS is detecting it. Is there another tool I need to use? How do I do this?
Sorry - that makes sense, but how in the heck do you partition and format in this OS? I found fdisk, but it seems to want you to refer to a certain drive and I'm thinking the second drive should be hdb, but it just says it can't open it?
Thanks, everyone for your help. It is secondary master and shows up in the Bios, but if I type fdisk /dev/hdc it just says it cannot open that device. If I do a -l it only lists partitions on hda. Must go now, but thanks again for the effort.
