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.

I am trying to set up a dual boot XP and FC4 machine. Both OSs are installed and working fine. I have a fat32 partition set up to be able to share files between OSs, but I can't mount it in FC4. I tried setting up a mount point and then adding it to /etc/fstab, but that doesn't seem to work. I don't quite know what to put in /etc/fstab due to my lack of experience with LVM and its naming conventions.
here is my /etc/fstab:
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
here is the output of fdisk -l:
