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.

My primary harddrive recently died upon me. I was uploading files to it via ftp when it suddently stopped. I logged in via ssh and every command (eg. ls, less, umount) gave an "input/output error". I had no other choice than to unplug the power. The harddrive had died.
I got a new hd and installed Fedora 4 again and updated it with yum. Now on the old install I had a software raid (RAID 0) on two USB disks (yes, I know, don't tell me...) I have moved this array from one installation to another before, no issues. But now.. I have made the same raidtab file as I had before, but when trying to "mkraid /dev/md0" I get the following error:
handling MD device /dev/md0
disk 0: /dev/sdb1, 58605088kB, raid superblock at 58604992kB
/dev/sdc1 appears to be already part of a raid array -- use -f to
force the destruction of the old superblock
Now how do I get around this with out destroying the data that is on the disk?
I have bought a new 300GB disk to replace the RAID, but I _really_ need the data on the RAID.. What to do?
