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.

I mounted /dev/sda1 and when I "ls" the root directory, I get several "NFS stale file handle" messages concerning directories (/dev and other).
I tried "e2fsck -y", had a bundle of corrections that resulted in the deletion of the directories.
I don't use NFS.
I did the same for the user filesystem and had no problem (it's an ext3 partition)
The two filesystems are the ones that came with the original Xandros installed on my eeepc and that were mounted with union-fs.
This is not a serious issue as this was only a test but I'd like to understand.
thank you for the answers but i definitely gave up the xandros installed on my eeepc. i kept the images i made and i realized that, in fact, the root image was useless as it is a read-only filesystem that never changes. as i hadn't problems with the the user filesystem image, i kept this one and get rid of the other. (i tried a restore by reinstalling the whole system and made a dd of the user filesystem image over the new one and it worked fine.)
P.S. : i now use linuxmint wich seems much better than xandros. i also gained about 1 and a half GB as xandros was using unionfs.
