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.

Im still pretty much a newb and need some feedback on partition sizes. I have done quite a bit of reading about them, however in todays age of large hard disks I need some feedback on my situation.
I would post this is the newb section, however since this system will be Mandriva I figured I would get better feedback here.
I will be installing Mandriva 10.2 on this system that was assembled from some older hardware:
1Ghz Pentium III
3.2GB and 3.1GB hard drives
The system will mainly be used as a web server, but of course I will also be using it to continue learning the Linux OS and will be adding packages of interest. I do plan to use KDE and/or Gnome
With a total hard disk size of 6.2GB I have come up with this partitioning scenario:
The only problem I am having is knowing if these partition sizes will be adequate for the needs of the system, especially the root / @ 500MB as it will be hosting the remainder of the file system that has not been allocated to its own partitions.
