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.

hey How is it going? I am using redhat 9, and I have used he search option but have not found the anwser to my problem. As I stated before I am using redat 9. Just a few days ago the power went out, and I restarted my comp But I recieved an error message that as follows:
"While the sys was checking the root filesys: I recieved a message /etc/fstab deso not contain fsck passno field. I should fix my /etc/fstab file as soon as a I can.
Also /: The superblock could not read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. if the device is valid and it contains an ext2 filesystem, (and not swap or ufs or something else) then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>.
In addition to all of this, fsck.ext2: is a dir while trying to open /.
p.s. I have tried linux rescue and I revieved an error occurred while trying to mount some or all of your sys. Some of it may be mounted under /mnt/sysimage.
