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.

please, don't tell me, to read the manuals and HOWTOs I'm over it.... So I need some effective help.
I set up couple of months ago an ancrypted filesystem with the help of loopback device.
Now I want to mount this encrypted filesystem to another linux box but I cannot do that. There's something to do with "ioctl". (Of course on my computer I can mount it). So I thought to set up a new loopback device on the other computer. I did all the stuff:
dd if =...
When I come to the point to give the password for encryption I get that "ioctl" error. I checked the kernel config (126.96.36.199) everything looks fine, loopback device is compiled (not as module) also the Cryptgraphy support, and the ciphers (all are compiled in, not as modules just to make it sure...).
So I really can't see what I've done different compared to my previous encrypted filesystem set-up. Can anyone give me some hints?
Is there maybe something to do with device-mapper settings/packages?
I'm using debian sarge distro with 188.8.131.52 kernel.
