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.

Im having this problem, i have my 80 GB HD partitioned with 57
GB fat 32 lba partition, mandrake control center agrees , but
when i ask 'df' , it says i have 47, even the system says i
ran out of space (in fact i have 10 GB free)
So im wondering if i did something wrong or is there a way 2

A lot depends on cluster size used on the fat32 format. I just can't find the right page that has the answer for you. I have seen 32 gig partitions end up with less than 30 gig available space. About 3 gig lost for 30 gig. The 10gig lost on the 57 gig might seem large but may not. As far as the clusters go say you use 4k clusters. A file that is 4k -1byte will fill a 4k cluster. A file that is 5k will take up 8k with a lose of 3k of available space. Next file is 7k. first it can not use the lost space in the previous cluster so it starts a new one. So now agian a 7k uses 8k of drive space. Changing cluster size can gain space but only so mant cluster can exist per cluster size.
I know this may not be clear, wish I could find that page about this.
If I find it I will post back.
