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 am having difficulty getting my cigar pro usb drive to work in RH 9.0 (it was working in 7.3)
I create the folder /mnt/cigarpro, then on the next command i get an error:
>>mount -t ext2 /dev/sda /mnt/cigarpro
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda, or too many mounted file systems
>>dd if=/dev/sda of=/tmp/drivedump count=1024
1024+0 records in
1024+0 records out
the file drivedump is binary, so can't really read it.
major minor #blocks name rio rmerge rsect ruse wio wmerge wsect wuse running use aveq
mount -t ext2 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro
as root type
that will bring you to a menu or give you a "Not a valid block device" error. If it's the error, try sdb sdc, etc and see what it comes back as.
In any case, check /var/log/messages and have a tail -f /var/log/messages going when you plug the drive in and see what the output tells you. It'll tell you if the drive is recognized and what device it becomes.
i don't know how you guys know all these commands, its amazing to me.
>>mount -t ext2 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
or too many mounted file systems
