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'm trying to install gentoo onto a seperate partition on my harddrive. I got to the point to where I got the partition formatted ext 3 and all of that, but then I hit a hang up. when i unpack the file (i'm doing a stage 3 install by the way) it always tells me it runs out of room. the actual code looks something like this
tar -xvjpf <name of file>
<bunch of typical correct responses>
<some file> can not be written. only wrote xx of xx to disk
<some file> can not be written. only wrote 0 of xx to disk
then it just keeps saying the zero thing again. Anyone had this problem or know how to fix it??
heres how my hard drive is partitioned. 2 is rh9 3 is where gentoo is supposed to go 4 is a data partition and the others are random linux things like swap and boot. And there isn't any free space, or at least there shouldn't be
