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.

Before we go down the direction you are asking, you don't have an ASUS motheboard by any chance do you? If so this is extremely easy with their built in DLNA media server and Android apps. Otherwise, have you tried plugging your usb cord in and seeing if you can just mount it?
Idiotically, I forgot to say that I was running Mageia Linux 2 and on an Asus M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard. I know nothing about Asus' DLNA Media server is that a compatible application?
To be a (a bit more) specific. If I plug in the Galaxy S3 by its USB lead, the system sees it but cannot get to the underlying directories and files. As I understand it the kernel that I am using doesn't support the file system used by Android which is designed for solid state storage as opposed to hard drives. My question should really have been, has an appropriate module yet been introduced into the kernel.
A quick google search shows that the S3 only uses MTP and therefore can not be mounted as standard USB storage device. I also found this bug which includes some links that might help you access the device.
Sadly not. The Samsung file system isn't on anything (or much) yet for example.
I have found some code that needs configuring etc but there are dependency issues
that I am trying to overcome with help from the community. It was aimed at Ubuntu
systems so getting it to work under Mageia adds to the burden.
If I get it to go, I'll report back here but "I wouldn't hold your breath" as they say.
Thanks for trying to help though.
