This lesson - Linux partitions and filesystems - concludes the first half of our Linux certification series and, not coincidentally, covers the last topics you'll need to know for the LPIC-1 101 exam. The final six lessons will get you up to speed on the 102 exam.

Besides getting to know the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, we'll learn how to:

  • Create and maintain secure and reliable partitions and filesystems
  • Mount and unmount filesystems
  • Limit access to only authorized users.
  • Create and manage hard and symbolic linked files.
  • Control the disk space allocation.

The previous lesson covered the Linux command line.

David taught high school for twenty years, worked as a Linux system administrator for five years, and has been writing since he could hold a crayon between his fingers. His childhood bedroom wall has since been repainted.

Having worked directly with all kinds of technology, David derives great pleasure from completing projects that draw on as many tools from his toolkit as possible.

Besides being a Linux system administrator with a strong focus on virtualization and security tools, David writes technical documentation and user guides, and creates technology training videos.

His favorite technology tool is the one that should be just about ready for release tomorrow. Or Thursday.
