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.

Hi, I just installed ubuntu 9.04 on a dual boot with Windows Vista. I'm trying to update and I get a message 'no free disk space' and an explanation that I don't have enough disk space on '\'. I should have enough free space.
I went to Gparted, I have 132Gb in partition /dev/sda2, file system ext2. I have partition /dev/sda5 file system ext3 mounted as '/', which has zero free space. What do I do in this situation.
/dev/sda5 on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

varrun on /var/run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
varlock on /var/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)

Nice try - change the < > to [ ] and the included will be formatted properly (you can edit your own posts).
Go to sf.net and get and run the bootinfo script - post the generated RESULTS.txt. It'll show us what's pointing to what.
This download isn't working. I went to sourceforge.net, found the boot_info_script, tried to download it. The download window doesn't open, I tried direct download, same thing. No files are being downloaded. Tried to change the 'save files to' under preferences, and it won't let me enter anything or browse.

That's where it leaves off, the last command doesn't have an output.
