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 have a hard drive that is unmountable. I want to DD the whole thing to another drive, but I hit the 4gb limit, and the drive is over 120gb, even though at most 2/3 of that is used. Is there any way to get past the 4gb limit to recover the data on the drive? Is dd even the best way to do this?
I am trying to recover data from a 120GB hard drive that WIndows can no longer access. Linux can see the drive, but cannot mount it. The drive is NTFS.
I tried the following:
dd if=/dev/hde of=/media/WD_Combo/recovery/img1.iso
where WD_Combe is a fat32 drive - so thats the limit? If I reformat the target drive in ext3 will it be able to copy with no size limit?
Also, if I do copy all the data to the ISO file, how do I get it back to a usable format? I am only used to using ISO's to burn/rip CD's...
