    Q: 2…………

    Minimum 2 partitions are needed for installing Linux.
    The one is / or root and another is swap

    Q7. How to know who has scheduled the job?
    As per your answer #at –l command please let know clarity about it.
    Acutely I am not aware of it please…

    Thank you,

    8 – I would choose tar -tf archive.tar :) or tar -atf archive.tar.[bz2|gz|xz] ;)

    and on question 2, I suppose space is missed between / and root: /root :)
    And regarding 2nd, cool thing about partitions I didn’t knew, will double check, but I think it has limitation on Partition Table, not just type of disk ;)

    Thanks :)

  4. 1. ^Z suspends a program, but does not run it in the background. To run it in the background you use another command. (You *do* know what it is, don’t you?)

    2. /root is not a partition; it is a directory in the root partition; the root partition is /.

    5. Why not cp -a?

    10. Return codes are not a feature of the shell. All programs leave a return code whetehr they are run by the shell or not.
