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 am trying to setup User Mode Linux on Slackware 10.1. I have successfully compiled a UML kernel (18.104.22.168) and created a root FS. Then i booted into UML successfully and partitioned the root FS. Then i formatted the root FS (ext3). After that I ran setup and selected the TARGET as /dev/ubdb1 (ext3 formatted root FS). I chose not to format the partition as i had already done. But as soon as i selected the option of not formatting the partition, the process got stuck. I halted UML and again booted into it, now when i try to run setup it says that there is no partition of type 'Linux' and that i need to create a partition of type 'Linux'. When i exit setup it gives me the following error.
rm: unable to stat `/var/log/setup/tmp/SeTfdisk': Input/output error
Moreover, when i change to /var/log/setup/tmp and do an ls -l, it gives me the same error for SeTfdisk i.e. Input/output error.
I have tried creating different file for root fs using dd. But i ended up getting the same error again.
