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 RedHat 9 system with a QLogic QLA2342 HBA that I'm using as a host to unit test a Fibre-Channel SCSI target through SCSI Generic. I'm using the 6.01 QLA2300.0 driver that shipped with RedHat. I have modified the SCSI source code to allow 16 byte's CDB to be used and added my device to the SCSI_SCAN.c file to allow sparse luns. The issue I'm seeing is that when I issue a inquiry command to the target where the cdb fields are zero except for the opcode, Linux hangs. I also seeing the Fibre Channel loop die and return when trying to issue the following cdb (12 0 0 0 ff 0) to different LUNS on the SCSI target. I believe this is a Linux SG or driver issue because the Fibre Channel trace I have taken doesn't show an Inquiry being issued before the loop goes down and comes back. Anyone know what is going on? RedHat says I need to buy an enterprise class subscription to get help from them. Qlogic says that they can't help since this is a RedHat specific driver --- loosely base on the 6.01 Qlogic driver.
