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.

OK, another blog post to remind myself -- and maybe somebody else, who knows? -- of how I finally did it.
Yes, from time to time I install other Unix OS's just in order to stay plugged in. The last FreeBSD 9.1 on ZFS was installed to double boot with my current Fedora 18 installation. GRUB2 boots both, it's become really universal now, and this allows to get more familiar with ZFS and its advantages -- which are quite impressing. Especially so after having deleted a couple of times...
The purpose of this blog is just to sum up various solutions I found which help in fixing a partition superblock related problems. I just thought, instead of googling every time such thing happens, why not keep it all in one document?
The problem started when after resizing my 1st ext4 partition I got problems mounting the resized partition and fsck would give off this error:

OK now! Have upgraded to Fedora 15 and GNOME 3!!!
Well it's not so bad, though definitely different. One good thing I've always been looking for is a clean desktop space -- this has been achieved. A very different look and feel of the desktop has its positive sides, too. Never liked GNOME, but now I feel better about it.
Not to say that there are no problems running GNOME 3 in Fedora 15. I'll share here just solutions to the problems I haven't found yet in Internet....

OK, recently I posted this question; by now I guess I've got my answer.
So here are the steps I followed to test the KERNEL LEVEL PPPOE and the issues I had to resolve.
When you read about it on Debian PPPoE Wiki page, it seems you need `pppoeconf` script or some other stuff to run it...
So wherever I'd go, there's never a simple and clear exhaustive explanation. So I figured, why not write one now?
OK, the kernel mode PPPoE setup...
As most things I could share are already present here in one thread or another, let me just tell MY story of how I found solutions to the problems I encountered.
And the first one in line to be told is the well-known "how to disable inactivity screen lock in KDE4???" problem. The screensaver starts after "..." minutes, you want to go back to your screen ... and must type in your password! You know the story.
