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 am running RHEL 5 on Vmware Workstation. That is i inslled Vmware Workstation on windows 7 and then in Vmware i installed RHEL 5 as a virtal machine. By mistake i made some wrong entry in my /etc/fstab file that is i was trying to automatically mount one folder under another folder. My syntax was wrong. So when i restart my RHEL 5 , at the boot time due to wrong entry in /etc/fstab system is giving file system error as follows:
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/home/download'
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/var/ftp/uploads'
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
*** Warning -- SELinux is active.
*** Disabling security enforcement for system recovery.
*** Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):
now if i type Control+D system again restart at after some time the same message appears on the screen.
But if i give root password for maintenance then the following appears
(Repair filesystem) 1`#
i tried (Repair filesystem) 1`# vi /etc/fstab
to delete those wrong entries but can not save changes after deleting wrong entries from /etc/fstab because the file was opened in read-only mode.
