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 was previously using Red Hat Linux 9.0 on my old gateway computer.
But i had accidently did "format /mbr" in dos which gets ride of grub. Meanwhile, i haven't creat any backup file since my installation. So i want to know if there is anyway i could get it working again. Or does anyone have suggest about reinstall my Red Hat Linux 9.0 from hard drive or network? I have a Belkin's PCMCIA F5D5020 ethenet card. But i don't have cable connection and it's connected to my desktop.
%%%Note, my cdrom wasn't working. So, there is no way about install from cdrom. i installed my box before it brokes.
Get ( d/l ) a Linux boot floppy, boot it, mount your current Red Hat installation to /mnt/hd, then use 'chroot /mnt/hd', logout & login again, and it's like your at the command line of the Red Hat you have installed. Use the bootloader tool RH provides, or run 'grub-install /dev/hda'.
His cdrom doesn't work. Unless he can download the floppy image for installation/rescue, he can't use 'rescue mode'.
What do you mean, 'instead it restarts', is this when you try to boot with floppy? Try this floppy: http://ncart.scs.ryerson.ca/pub/slac...otdisks/bare.i
Use this to write it in Windows if needed. http://ncart.scs.ryerson.ca/pub/slac.../RAWRITEXP.EXE
It is just a kernel. Tell it where your RH partition is with 'root=/dev/[disk]', and toss in the 'single' option to boot at a command line. Then use '/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda''
I did what you said and it did workout. But during i was booting my linux kernel. there is an error Modprobe : Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.dep.
Right here, i don't even think it's possible. I am running redhat linux 8.0 which was running kernel 2.4.18 and the only two thing that's under /lib/modules was /2.4.18 and /2.4.18-custom.
anyway, i want to know how can i recovery the file that's corrupted or how can i found out which file was corrupted?
