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,I had to reinstall windows and then GRUB was gone. With the LiveCD I did:
put the result ( which was hda0,1) in like this:
I rebooted and my grub menu was there. I selected the Linux kernel I Wanted to boot, but it gave me an error telling me that the device isn't bootable or something like that. So I tried again, tried every one of the ubuntu entries besides the memtest. And I keep on getting a message that says that the partition "can't be mounted".
Is it because I installed ubuntu on a JFS-formatted partition, rather than EXT2/3?
pls reboot the live cd and click on the icon for sda2 and post your /etc/fstab pls and /boot/grub/menu.lst
if you do not have an icon on the live cd desktop...mount it manually with
mount -t jfs /dev/sda2 /z
you then use the live cd to navigate to /z/etc/fstab or /z/boot/grub/menu.lst
There's no icon, If I try to mount, I get this notorious message:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /z
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount -t jfs /dev/sda2 /z
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
