lets discus about the Linux crash and recovery

I did not find any good article for the linux crash recovery. I want every body to share there experience about the linux crash and what and how the system administrator can recover the system suscessfully.

Actually i am posting this article becasue recently my system crashed and i tired every possible step in recovering it.

i did e2fsck, from rescue mode , and even upgrading the system throught the installation system.

well I built an LFS system a little over a year has been solid as a rock and boots up quick and responds even quicker.........

It has crashed only twice in that time.......and both times I used CD#2 from Slackware 9.1........CD#2 is a live boot/rescue disk..........But I think the main thing everyone should do to counter a nasty crash is to back up.......back up often, anything you deem important--files, music, movies, games, etc.....back it up and burn it all to a CD-r or two......that way your data is always safe.....just in case you cannot recover and have to re-install........
