First, writing in all caps is considered to be rude, as it is the digital equivalent of yelling/demanding.

There are several file systems used in Linux. Which file system are you referring to? ext2, ext3, Reiserfs, hpfs, vfat, msdos, vfs, proc, or yet some other possibility?

Here is a link describing some of this. It seems to me you need to figure out which file system you want to learn, and start from there. Google is your friend in finding the home site for each file system.

Just to add a bit to what Freddy already said, you are asking for quite a bit. This isn't a critisism but you are delving into the Linux kernel at this point. The most common Linux file system is ext3 so let's start there (as Freddy said, there are numerous file system options).

http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/388

http://puggy.symonds.net/~rajesh/howto/ext3/ext3-5.html

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-8.0-Manual/custom-guide/part-filesystems.html

As Freddy said, Google is your friend. There are just tons of online resources available. Another thing you might consider is a book recently published by O'Reilly called "Linux Kernel in a Nutshell". I recently wrote a review of this book that will be published in Linux Magazine at a later date.

I just posted a news item on this site announcing that this book is available as a free download. Here's the story:

http://www.linux-tutorial.info/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=4038

That should get you started.

Oh, by the way...Freddy is also correct about the use of all caps online. It is the Internet equivalent of yelling at someone. I'm going to assume you didn't know that and in the future, please type your messages so it doesn't hurt our "ears". Thanks. Wink
