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.

This is my first message although I have been an avid reader for quite some time. Normally I find the information I need by doing a search, but this time I seem to be stumped.
I am running a used HP Compaq which is about 4 years old. 90Gig Sata HDD, DVD burner and 4Gig ram. I installed Fedora 17 two months ago as a third and final attempt to rid myself of Windows, and it is fabulous. The computer runs well, but the case can only hold one drive at a time, and I want a second drive as a backup.
Will do the backup with Clonezilla which has ample literature which I can use to help me through the process.
I have two ways of going about this.
1. Either use my external portable USB drive to hold the image which I then burn to the new hard drive, or
2. Use a USB Sata hard drive dock which will handle both desktop and laptop drives and do a straight Drive to Drive clone.
I would prefer to use the docking station because my external USB drive holds all my backup files which I do not want to lose if something should go wrong.
Current searches for hard drive docks only tell me that they will handle Windows and/or Mac file types.
My question is, if I go the way of the external dock:
Which USB hard drive docks will handle Linux?
