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 gave a interview yesterday. I did well on all files / server configuration etc.
I could not answer few questions, one of them is :-
We have a partition say /tmp of 2 GB, in df -kh command it is showing all utilized i.e. 100 % disk utilization.
BUT when we fire command du -sk /tmp, it is showing only 1 GB. How will you trouble shoot this.
Yes it would have showed files that are not viewable also, like in the instance of oracle which uses space but creates no visible file.
Oh, also it may be out of inodes because they don't always take up all the disk space but will give the error the file system is full because there is a limit to 'how many' files may be on a file system as well.
You could delete loads of small files that were not needed to cure the problem.
