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.

Woke up to a terrible find yesterday, I couldn't boot into my laptop.
I have kubuntu/XP dual boot, all had been fine. My guess was the Kubuntu root partition has either reached or almost reaching its max space, 15G
I had installed 4 Linux Operating systems onto VirtualBox which must have done the job.
I now get a couple of errors on boot;
Problem loading please wait;
and an error of not finding the operating system.
I installed a Knoppix live cd that at the beginning read the different sda partitions but wouldn't allow me to edit them and then after rebooting, it stopped reading them.
GParted on Ubuntu Feisty live Cd read the partitions, and also told me that kubuntu root partition is at 13.79G, a little less than the max 15G.
What now, could this be a Grub problem?
How can I recover and fix it using a linux live Cd?
I dont have Sys Rescue Cd but maybe knoppix will do?
Would installing another Linux distro on a separate unallocated partition, with 9Gs of space, help in the recovery process?
