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.

If I want to backup my Evolution 1.0.8 files and my Mozilla 1.3a in
RedHat 8.0, which files do I burn to a cd? I'm migrating to RedHat 9 and must redo my /boot as I've set it up as too small a partition, 288.6 MB, with my /tmp as way too large, 4.5G.
Since it looks like you did partitions, if /home is a separate partition, you can install RedHat 9 and leave the /home partition unformatted to return it to the way it was. I don't like the feeling of just upgrading everything because I may have accumulated things I didn't want .. so when I went from 8.1 to 9.0, I formatted all partitions except for the /home one .. so when I fired up the new applications, all my preferences were still there.
Are you kidding me? 288.6 MB is too small for a /boot partition? You should never need more than 50MB. Right now I have 9 different kernels, and a whole pile of different initrd's, system.map's, and so forth, plus my bootloader files and it is only 35MB.
