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.

and run this program on a intellistation 64bits machine
currently there are 12 installed distros (various versions of RedHats and NLDs where each version RedHat and NLD, i have both 32bits version and 64 bits version) on each partitions. (currently with this machine i have partitioned it into 22 (partitions for distro with 6g for each partition), + 1 swap, +2 (/home and /grubsys)
It seemed that when I tested the program on 64bits distro version, the program gives the right memory values from sysinfo. BUT when i tried it on 32 bits distro version, it doesn't.
for 32 bits distro versions, I got :
freeram (489KB), freeswap (635KB), totalram (506KB), totalswap (641KB)
throughout various distros I installed but using 32 bits version of that distro.
seemed that somehow when running the program on 32bits distro it might have only grabs the lower 32 bits of a 64bits machine...
perhaps someone have any idea why this happen???
