Ok, I have been working with Windows based machines since windows first came out prior to that it was DOS. I don't want to call my self a newbie but I am when it comes to Linux. I was running Fedora 7 with Samba as a file server, but getting into web development, I relized I need more of a webserver so I scraped my F7 box and did a fresh install of F8 following falko's howto on Fedora 8 Server Setup: LAMP, Email, DNS, FTP, ISPConfig. I ran into issues left, right and center such as there shouldn't be a space in the fstab /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1 this wouldn't allow it to be mounted 2 hrs to figure out "mount -w -o remount /" allows you to edit the /etc/fstab since it was readonly mode. I took out the space and the usrquota, grpquata and booted fine added those back in minus the space now 8 things fail while loading and it hangs at starting named: cp: cannot remove '/var/named/charoot/etc/localtime:' readonly file system or something like that. I am unable to edit anything I tried entering in as single mode no go. So I figure I need to get down to the basics and I was wondering if anyone can suggest any websites or books that teach you the basics in commands, file system how to install or uninstall packages all the way up to the advanced stuff. Any help, suggestions or pointers other than RTFM would be greatly appericated..
