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.

Ok, a couple weeks ago I was fixing a cron report about perl not happy with 'locale' info (LANG and LC not set). As a result, I was experimenting with setting the correct 'locale' in several areas (like /etc/sysconfig/i18n and who knows where). Somehow after a reboot, as soon as the OS starts loading (first at populating /dev), I get the following error:
'Cannot execute binary file'.
At first I thought there was a problem with /sbin/start_udev however if I get into single user mode and then init to level 3, all scripts return the same error 'Cannot execute bianry file'. It is clear to me that I somehow messed up the root or boot environment so it doesn't know what to do with startup scripts. Can someone give me some point form instructions as to what I should systematically look at in order to fix this? I've spent two weeks reading forums/google and I'm at a loss.
Thanks a million for any/all help.
