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.

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 wasn't sure where to post this so I thought here would be good for all the newbies including myself. I had a pc that had a 320 gb hd in it with CentOS 5.2 Installed on it. I am not sure what happened but it broke and broke bad. GDM is giving a problem and also a few other things. It was formatted as LVM and it is now bootable but x and some otehr things like network auditd and such are not working so I thought it would be a good idea to load it in the machine as a second drive so I could get my files of of it. Well it is not as easy as I thought.
I tried to mount it with mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /mnt/disk3 which is where the files are located on that drive however I only got the root to mount and I can't get the other to mount anyone have any ideas please. I really need to get these files of it. Thanks a ton in advance,
