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.

two days ago i had a power supply problem in linux box running Red Hat EL 4.4. I got it repaired and now when I try to boot the system, I get the message
mkrootdev: label /1 not found
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
unmount /initrd/dev failed:2
kernal panic not syncing attempted to kill init!
I have three STAT hard disks having very important data, how can i recover the os or at least recover data,
Thanks for your reply, I will do that but tell me if i had to copy data from those hard disks to some other machine, how to go for that, please suggest any tutorial for that and explain me these lines and from where is this system booting
This system is booting from a partition that has the label specified.
To copy the data from that machine, you need to connect another machine in some way.
You can do that with scp for instance.
Use the tar command to create one big file with all the files you want to copy:
tar -cvf mytar.tar /where/is/my/data
And copy it with scp
scp mytar.tar some_user@some_remote_machine:/where/to/put/my/data
sorry for bothering you again, now the problem is the hardware is gone down compeletely and i have 3 disks attached with that system, if i attached these disks to some other linux box one by one, what is the way to view the data
