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 partition out my system. But I underestimated how much space I needed in the /home partition and another one, which I can't remember right now (the server is at school, I'm at home). The format is ext3 for everything. It would be nice if I could just join all the partitions together is this possible? I can't lose any data, any solutions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks everyone!
no, that's not possible. it might be possibel to rearrange the partitions, but that wouldn't be an easy thing to do. if you can provide a full df output and more background info you might get lucky, i doubt it though
You can use 'parted' to resize the partitions. Parted is a console mode program and it's not very easy to do, but possible. If you have Mandrake installation cd (no 1), you can use it (nice, graphical partitioning tool in the installer).
