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.

Still struggling with the same issue; not being able to delete some files within /tmp even as root. Originally I could not delete 20 files. But after a few days I was able to delete 17 files (I did rm * and it deleted 17 of them..but not the other 3). Now I am down to 3 which I cant delete.
I'm taking a guess that those files are in use. Thus the 17 which you could delete after a few days was because you'd stopped using the apps which were using those files.
Unless the files are huge, and/or are just accumulating, why fuxxor with them?
