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 just successfully got a partition encrypted and secure enough to put my private stuff on and feel like it cant be recovered by anybody else. Full Stop
Linux Magazine ran an article in issue 61 Dec 2005 called ¨Secret Messages¨. Following this through I d/l the required stuff and with dm-crypt, LUKS and cryptsetup I was able to get it set up.
My thanks to the authors, Clemens Fruhwirth and Markus Schuster.
The listing was a little cryptic itself so for those interested i´ve attached a text file of my commands and responses.......whoops I see I cant post attachments ...why is that?
Well you´ll have to work out the listing yourself
When you read it only the lines starting with # are commands into the terminal the rest are what it puts out.
I could not get mkfs.xfs to work on a Mandriva 2006 system . The only one that would work for me was minix . Ill work out why later but I´d like to get one up on a usb stick next.
Post if you do it!

We don't allow attachment of files here at LQ. I'd assume due to the potential for abuse as well as bandwidth. If you need to include text with your post, you can use the CODE or QUOTE tags. Although if you are planning on posting a tutorial then I'd suggest putting together a clear and concise step-by-step walthrough and submit it as a LinuxAnswers
