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.

Our company trying to migrate to mySQL 5.0 and I'm having some problems setting it up on our first new server.
System: 8 GB Ram, Dual-core.
OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
I was able to get it to start but I'm trying to change the directory the database is stored. I understand this is the datadir value in the my.cnf. This file doesn't exists so I copied the my-huge.cnf file and inserted the following lines at the bottom:
Also do I change all the /var/lib/mysql/ to the new directory or the one value. Only other path in the file was for socket, so I changed that even though I could find the fine it was originally pointing to. When I try to start mysql I get the following message.
[root@Hostname /]# service mysql start
Starting MySQLCouldn't find MySQL manager or server [FAILED]
I copied the /var/lib/mysql director to /sqldir and chown it to mysql user. I tried changing basedir=/sqldir/mysql/, putting the socket path back as it was and commenting it out but continue to get the above error. if I remove my.cnf then mysql starts fine only not using desired database path.
