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 multiple partitions set up on my Slackware 11 machine. I have on for the root partition (hda3), one for /boot (hda2), and one for /home (hda4). Whenever I boot using the 22.214.171.124 kernel, I receive a message for both hda2 and hda4 stating the following:
warning: CONFIG_REISERFS_CHECK is set ON
Within fstab, they are both set to 1 2. Is this where I would disable this check for these partitions? Is there somewhere else to disable this? Is this harmful to leave it as is? Thanks for any responses.
Yes, this message follows after the one pertaining to the CONFIG_REISERFS_CHECK message during boot-up. Is this something that needs to be addressed and, if so, what should I do? This is the first time that I have enabled separate partitions for Slackware for /boot and /home, and am unsure what the importance of this is. I do not receive these messages for the root drive. Thanks.
I'm just wondering why I receive these messages only for partitions other than the root partition. When I was just using one swap and one root partition, I never experienced these messages before. So if I disable reiserfs file checking completely within the kernel, will this have any adverse affect on the system? I can most likely just run reiserfstune occasionally if needed, which is what I've done before anyway.
OK, I have disabled this option within the kernel and recompiled. After reading the notes regarding the debugging option, it is recommended to be disabled for the majority of users. I suppose that I have overlooked this in the past, as I don't recall receiving any sorts of messages when using only one partition, other than the swap. I learn something new about Linux, it seems, each day
