Need advice as to which core to learn on
I am just starting to learn Linux and would like to start with Fedora. I am not quit an expert on all MS OS's (from DOS 5.0 to Vista RC2) but know a good bit, so I figure it's time to get into Linux.
I want to be able to run Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl etc.. I have Kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 installed and am trying to figure out how to add NTFS support. I've used Stanton-Finley.net to configure various Fedora setup's before, but can't ever seem to get an NTFS file system to work. I have 4+ TB's worth of hard drive's and would like to be able to run some on my linux box w/o converting the file system.
What is the easiest way to go about this? I have the Fedora 4 "Unleashed" bood that is ~1100 pages, and seems like a pretty complete guide.
I just need some direction to get me over the NTFS dilema. Any guidance or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
PS, Should I upgrade my kernel? Is it not wise to do this if I have this book I'm going to use as my "guide" or teacher?
I tried installing the NTFS kernel instructions and did this to add to my /etc/fstab file:
# gedit /etc/fstab
Added the following line:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,defaults,umask=0222 0 0
I then saved the file making sure there was a line between the last line and then end the file
