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 very strange questions, i was browsing one of my friend hard drive using knoppix live CD, i was amazed to find that all the folder which he uses was empty, there was no files present in them, for example there was a folder in /usr/local named web, but when i browsed that folder using knoppix it was empty.I searched for files in every partition but still no result found.
After some time when i placed hard disk back and booted the PC normally, everything was in its proper place. Then i thought to make image of the hard drive and use it on my PC, the image booted well, but still those particular files were missing.
I want to know how is that possible??
Is there any way to get files from the remote system during bootup??
How can i get those files???
My hunch is that some key piece of information is being omitted here---all I can suggest is to give a complete description of the system and post the results of "fdisk -l", the commands used to mount the partitions, and the results of "ls -al", etc.
forget the "find" command---if "ls -al" shows nothing, then "find" won't see anything.
