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 saw on the net messages about a bug "Not on the same files system" in Gnome, but I was not paying much attention until I get similar strange behavior. The bulk of my extra RAID-type HD space (1.33TB total) is formatted as one volume group "data" and it is mounted upon boot to /data directory. Initially I was collecting chunks of data in this directory (folders, files) without much order, but then I wanted to make it more orderly by creating subdirectories, like /data/Assembly, /data/RefMap and so on. I created just a few such subdirectoies and consolidated in there already existing data files and data folders. Suddenly, attempts to move another group of files and folder into a just created directory failed with message: Error Not on the same files system" while moving "/data/new file". Since then any attempts to move existing files/folder into a newly subdirectory produce the same message. Moving files into already created directories continue to work just fine, but not into any newly created subdirectory. Similarly, a new file created in /data can be moved into any subsidrecories created earlier, but not into any new subdirectory. The same beghavior from a user or root account and after reboot. Deleting and creating new files and subdirectories in /data is not a problem, only moving into any newly created subdirectory. Does anyone encountered similar problem? Any advice how to overcome this bug - if this is a bug indeed?
