Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

put an entry in /etc/fstab like
devicename mount folder fstype options dump fscheck
/dev/sda1 /mnt/empty_sda1 vfat rw,defaults,umask=0000 0 0
In the above command umask=000 ,makes the drive writable by all.u can change as per ur permission need.
Now u can find the drive inside gnome and kde browsers under the mounted directory.
It is persistent across reboot.(i.e)loaded evertime the system boots.
rm -f /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/99-redhat-storage-policy-fixed-drives.fdi
so that u will have drives loaded by gnome itself.
I've successfully setup dual boot for XP & FC6, but I can't get back to the console as the sessions provided at login only for gnome, last session, failmode, and system session, which all don't lead to the shell console.... What should I do!? I need your magical guide again~~

press alt+ctrl+fX keys simultaneously
here X may be replaced from 1 to 7
dont understand it,Since linux in a multi user operating system like unix,u can login into the the system any no of times simultaneously
for example if u pres alt+ctrl+f1 u will provided a virtual console, u can use upto alt+ctrl+f6.To return back to graphical mode press alt+ctrl+f7

the file name is /etc/fstab not stab
at shell prompt type,
mkdir -p /mnt/emty_sda5
this opens the file in vi editor,goto thelast line and add the following
The methods you provided always work like magic! I must thank you again But I still have some little questions if you dont' mind me to ask since I am working hard to learn FC6 within 2 wks from newbie... ><
I have difficult in detecting and install the proper NIC on my linux. Here is the scenario, I have two computers:
(1)Main Computer (WinXP, DSL connected to Internet)
(2)A hub, connected to both Main Computer & Laptop
(3)Laptop (WinXP, Fedora Core 6, connected to hub via ethernet cable)
The NIC for the laptop that I've identified (via WinXP MyComputer) is:
Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gibabit Ethernet NIC
However, then I try to add a new device in Network configuration in FC, I can only find Realtek RTL8129 (older version) and I cannot active it (either not supported or because I didn't setup the proper port and I don't know how).
I just installed FC6 with full package installation (tick both KDE and GNOME at installation package selection). However, after installation, I've entered as GNOME desktop and cannot find the desktop swticher under System -> more system setting. Did they removed it?
Sorry about the newbie questions, I've tried to solve these problems with all my knowledges and research over google and forums but can't find proper solution. ><
I've got a very strange problem here. I can't have access to cmd like fstab nore ifconfig etc, even logged as su. Here is how i access FC6:
(1) Turn on computer and select FC6 to boot.
(2) At login page, select session->gNorm and loggin as rms1981
(3) Once in desktop, use application-accessories-terminal
(4) go to / and logging as su
(5) type 'ifconfig' and it says 'bash: ifconfig: command not found'
(6) type 'whereis ifconfig' and it says 'ifconfig: /sbin/ifconfig'
What should i do?
type system-config-network-tui in terminal and try to configure the ethernet card by entering addresses
Where can i find this address? Can I use WinXP to find out this address?? Sorry I am very bad at networking as well ><
