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.

This was also my configuration in RH9 and all worked correctly. Whatīs wrong??? When logged as normal user (in Gnome) when right clicking the the icon that represents /dev/hda5 (windows part.) and /dev/sda1 (flash disk) or the floppy, i canīt change the file permissions because there is nothing displayed in that area. It looks very odd.
Thanks for your help.
I have a fat32 partition which I mount in Fedora, this is the entry in my /etc/fstab file.
/dev/hdb1 /mp3 vfat defaults,user,umask=000
This mounts the drive on boot, and allows me to read & write to it (as a normal (nonroot) user).
Hope this helps.
Also, I haven't seen the problem where you can't umount your floppy or usb drive. I haven't had any problems with mine, just make sure before you umount them, that they aren't been used by anything, and you are not cd'd into the /mnt/floppy folder.
