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.

hello everyone. iv been trying to write a init script that will run at both boot and shutdown. the script is to creat a ramdisk and copy a load of files to it at boot time and copy the files back to the harddrive at shutdown. from what i can see the script itself is working, ie if i run it on the command line with start or stop args it does what its supose to. iv saved the file in "/etc/rc.d/init" and iv added a symbolic link to "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d" called "S99ramdiskCache.sh" to call the script at boot and another link in "/etc/rc.d/rc0.d" called "K00ramdiskCache.sh" to call it at shutdown. at boot the script is being called as it should, but at shutdown it isnt being called. i cant see what can be the problem. what i want is for it to be the first script called at shutdown hence the "K00" prefix. my distro is FC4 and im using the 2.6.16-1.2108_FC4 kernal.
if anyone has any ideas of where im going wrong or need more info please write back. any help will be greatly appreciated :-)
