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.

Depending on the version of KDE and file manager you are using, there is a simpler route to accessing drives (if they are not being automounted). In Konqueror there is a panel on the right side, a thin panel that is further to the right than the folder panel. The last button on that panel, labelled system, is useful. Click it and you will find an entry called Storage devices, which you can select and refresh (F5) and you will see all newly plugged storage devices. Double click any and they will be accessible, under media. KDE4 the dumbest desktop manager ever has castrated Konqueror in many respects, and even added an even impotent dolphin for this job, so all the above applies to Konq used in KDE3.5 or less.
More technically, automounting is controlled by the autofs service, which is probably disabled. Check for the services that are started at boot time by visiting the control panel (it is there somewhere).
