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 had to tar up a few directories and since there are a few files that stop it from completing I have to cancel and then add those files to an exclude file. But I don't want to recreate the tar that I already have because it will take extra time to do so and I haven't much of it for what i'm working on.
How do I exactly keep the same .tar with the same size and just keep adding on to it without it having to overwrite and recreate from base up.
Yes i've been reading about the -r function. Actually just got done reading up on appending files and I've come up with the basic answer for this option is that if I were to use it it would just add everything over and over again to the file but hmmmmm maybe if .. ok brb I have an idea
Since the last file on my archive is erroneous I keep getting EOF error when I try my -r (append)
So I guess i'll just do everything from the beginning and i'll make sure to script everything so it outputs everything for me and just restart over and over .......
I just hope there aren't anymore damaged files on this crap ..
Guess i'll bite the bullet and have to deal with whatever other corrupt files come my way and just add them to the exclude.
800mb worth of stuff but there are alreaday just two files out of a 300MB copy. So thankyou buddy Lata
