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've got a problem that I can't explain. I've got a SiI3112A PCI serial ATA card that by all appearances is working fine. I've compiled a custom 2.6.8 kernel (which is working perfectly in all other areas) but not this one. Anyway the card is working fine in Windows, and I had it working before in linux, but for some reason with my debian box it's not working at all. Everything appears to be working except /dev/sda and /dev/sda1 (where the drive's ntfs partitions are) aren't there! All other /dev/sd's are there including /dev/sda2 and so on. My /proc/partitions file reads it to be there as well.
Here's the appropriate bootup messages: Everything seems to be working fine.
