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.

why don't u put up a restrictions list alonside each page of this list..
i do not think asking for an urgent reply is doing any harm or breaking any rule...
this list is for the help of people and if u think it shud run by ur whims then please pass on the controls to a person who does not get irritated by such petty issues...
It is not a "whim" it is generally considered very poor nettiquette to demand fast replies. the members of this site are voluntary, and attempting to demand preferential service is not fair or polite. many people will actively ignore posts where the author has maked them as "urgent" or similar, and so is often a very counter productive step.
i'd also suggest people stop recommending chowning / chmodding /proc.... if permission issues are arising on /proc then either the uers is trying to do somethign incorreclty or a more seriosu problem will most probably exist.

sorry acid, I forgot to read that it was /proc he was trying to alter the permissions of.
If you'll excuse my asking, why are you trying to alter the permissions there?
what is the current mode of the folder?
to other users...
i have installed the L7 filter in my kernel and it makes a file in /proc/net. now this file is wholesum of the program and very important for the running of this particular application..
but unfortunately, my installation is not exactly doing so.. so just thought of creating the file myself and put the contents in it..
but both /proc and /net have the 555 permission so i cannot write in them.. i managed to successfully change the eprmission of /proc but /net cud still not be forced into it... that is why i posted this question.
see, nothing fishy in this.. just trying to do my own work with help of so many friends out there
