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 installed Slack 9 and have Gnome running, and after I got everything working, I downloaded both giFT and a DC++ client to set up my filesharing. I went to add my NTFS drives(which I have mounted under /mnt/windows1 and /mnt/windows2), which contains all of my Shared stuff. But when I try to use them, they both give me errors.
Basically, my question is whether I can share files from my mounted NTFS drives. I know that the drives are read-only, but I thought I would be able to read from the drives and share those files, but...is it just a program specific thing, or are you not able to share stuff from those mounted drives?
I'm using RHL9, but I think it applies to all linux, the fact being that linux does not support NTFS file systems YET. If you have your files in a FAT file system it's all good though.
Actually, many Linux distributions support NTFS out of the box - the key is to only Read NTFS and not try to write to it. - For legal reasons Red Hat has chose not to include either of the NTFS drivers.
