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.

Oh--NTFS. I know that older versions of Knoppix would refuse to write to NTFS for safety reasons (not entirely reliable NTFS file support at the time). I'm not sure what the situation is with recent versions of Knoppix. You may get a better answer on the Knoppix forums.
Yeah I can't change the drive to allow writing, Could I transfer the data to an iPod or is that ntfs also? And when I connect the iPod I don't see its drive anywhere, where would that be? And is there a Knoppix fourm I couldnt find one?
Knoppix installs what is called "Captive NTFS" It should be on the default menu, however, I don't have knoppix running and could not say exactly where but it is there... This will allow you to transfer files to your NTFS drive/partition.
Also I don't have an Ipod but I don't think it is formated NTFS most likely Fat32... Use the mount command after you plug in the ipod to find the mount point:
I cannot find Captive NTFS anywhere not with search or going through all the menu'y, maybe my version didnt come with it? And I still have no idea how to show my ipod, i type mount in the run command window and nothing happens
