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.

When I go to log out of many and to reboot my computer... it logs me out of my name and there is an option there that says reboot ot halt... so i click reboot... another mandrake screen comes on that says ok and back... and has a text box w/ nothing in it... So when i log out of linux i have to use the button on my pc to shut it down and then turn it back on to get into my other os...
Any 1 know how to fix this??
and could it be related to my other problem on booting up i get
Finding Module Dependencies: lmd_validate_partition_table() Disk Read Failed ???
And if so how would i go about fixing that.....
Also in my LILO Boot loader when it loads up... it has like 5 options?!?!
Those 5 options are normal. They're as stated failsafe or backup boot options incase of boot problems.
another mandrake screen comes on that says ok and back... and has a text box w/ nothing in it... So when i log out of linux i have to use the button on my pc to shut it down and then turn it back on to get into my other os...
I think the shutdown screen should be a list of [OK]ed items, not just 1. Possibly due to the booting error, as shutting down is almost the reverse process.
huh.... no... when i first installed it this past sunday ive gotten that error and well... i dont usually shut my comp down or restart so it ws on and running until tuesday when i went to reboot and i got that thing.... and when i sign on linux i get that message... but usually it loads fine... and XP which is what im on right now is fine nothing wrong...
Have you configured that much or can you wipe your install and try again?
Are you using downloaded cds? Have you checksummed the ISOs? And the burned cds?
Logging in as root is bad. Means you can easily screw up your system, and any code run is as root too (eg nasty malicious code/exploits via your browser or services connected to the web). Hence KDE's Krootwarning splashscreen and Mandrake forcing you to make an everyday-use account.
If the problem is with the kernel module and not dodgy install cds, I cant help you. I cant help you either way really.
Well... i d/l the iso's and checked the md5 and it was fine....
No I config... a bit and when i mean i log in as root when im in konsole and need to install something i su to root and do it otherwise thats it....... i havent een done much w/ it that i could have screwed up nething at all.... if I don't know what it does or havent been told by a linux guru on what to do... i really havent touched it then
wowowow... im back on linux ... but it told me that it was unmounted weird and wow... that was scary... lol.... and ummm now i also saw that error the lmd_validate_partitions_table() Disk Read Failed w/ xine somehting liek that... dunoo oif its an error from that or what not...
