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 have a Toshiba Magnia Server running RH7.x on a 20GB hard drive.
I am getting several more of these without hard drives.
I want to transfer (copy) the existing OS to new hard drives (probably 40 or 60GB capacity) and install them in the new servers. The image includes a lot of other data files and the server setup.
The server is already set up to create an "image" of one hard disk to another in a separate slot provided. But because of the way it creates a "snapshot," the hard disk will then be a 20 GB partition, wasting the rest of the space.
I also have Red Hat 9.0 running on another computer on the network. I have plenty of space to back up the entire system on that computer...and then copy it on to a blank HD connected via USB 2.0
I am not all that familiar with Linux...but I would appreciate any guidance anyone can offer about the best way to get the OS off a 20GB drive onto a larger drive intact...with more space available for files.
Hi, I have a Magnia SG10 server. I would like to know if someone knows if is possible to make a clear install of any standard linux distribution (particulary Red Hat 9 or Fedora) on this server and if a standard linux distribution has all the drivers needed to make the server work?
