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.

Crazy, but I unplugged a harddrive by 'accident' and replugged it in. On unclean shutdown and upon restarting, one of the hard drives went critical. I deleted and rebuild the array, which showed functional upon reboot.
Here is where the fun begins.
System integrity check: Y
After clean check of root filesystem I get the following error:
REmounting root filesystem in read-write mode: mount: LABEL=/ duplicate - not mounted FAILED
That's where it starts, and then I have more erros, which I will gladly supply. It continue with many failures of no such file or directory and then tries over and over with:
INIT: ID "n" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
you're booting from this array, correct? If so you might want to grab and burn a KNoppix .iso and boot from the CD you create to see if you can get a hint as to what might have gone wrong. At the very least you should backup all critical data (/home, logs, setups in /etc) then you can mess with it a little more.
You should also try to find out why the array failed in the first place - are the drives getting hot?
LOL, no they are not...it was totally mindless. I was too lax on plugging and unplugging while running and didn't think.
I have a different server that needs some configuration that will back this one up, so I am not too worried. Just have a lot of files I would like to grab from this one.
I tried the boot disk I made for the system, and that didn't work, but I guess I could try this other that you are mentioning. If I can get into the box, I can burn the files and be ok in the end. I was going to put this system down as primary anyway.
I guess there is still a chance to save some files then, eh?
