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.

Last night i was removing a bunch of stuff that I didn't need using pkgtool and this morning when i turned t computer back on it no longer boots. Here are the errors that I'm getting:
/sbin/mount: error while loading shared libraries: libblkid.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
cat: /proc/filesystems: No such file or directory
/sbin/swapon: error while loading s hared libraries: libblkid.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Testing root filesystem status: read-only filesystem
Checking root filesystem:
/etc/rd.d/rc.S: line 67: /sbin/fsck: No such file or directory
Then it goes on to tell me to run: e2fsck -v -y <drive> . When I try to run the command, I get an error that the command does not exist. I really have no clue how I caused this problem or how to fix it; I merely removed extra languages, cd burning software, and other little things that I had no use for. I don't recall removed any major components. Anyways, that's my problem. Also if somebody can tell me how I would go about changing the filesystem on the hard drive from ext2 to ext3 without erasing everything I'd greatly appreciate it as well.
