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.

actaully i have serious problem and dont know what to do.
I gived 1000M for / and as i understand the /usr/src is mounted there. I want to add a new kernel and there is no free space there.
I have addition 690 free Mb not mounted and not used at all. Could anybody help me whith it? How i could increase /usr/src partition?
the output of df -h is
FS Size used use mounted on
/dev/hda1 1004M 859 86% /
You can use cfdisk to format the 690MB, then mount it at /usr/src/linux-2.6.0 (or whatever you are installing. mke2fs is used for setting it up. Careful with cfdisk, as you could wipe out / and end up with a new install.
You should double check that the 690MB is not your swap.
The disks are mounted in /etc/fstab. Be very careful changing this file, as you can screw up mounting / as well.
wel now i could not boot at all it gives me no idle task - not syncing or smth like that.
The linux made something whith my hard disk. for no i couldn not boot nor win bootable disk nor red hat.
im really disappointed
