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'm trying to use my USB memory stick on a PC with Fedora Core. I looked for the information and found some advice. According to it I did the next things:
I typed the line:
Then I created a subdirectory in the /mnt directory:
I opened the file /etc/fstab and added the next line:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick vfat user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
Then in a second terminal window I typed:
tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
I plugged in the USB memory stick and typed the next:
According to the instructions, the memory drive icon had to appear on the desktop. But didn't appear. The messages in the second terminal window were like this:
kernel: Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
kernel: usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
kernel: USB Mass Storage support registered
kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:02.1: port 2reset error -110
kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: hub_port_status failed (err=-32)
kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: cannot enable port 2. Maybe the USB cable is bad?
Does anybody know what is my problem? I don't have any skills in Linux, so, please, explain me what I'm doing wrong as simple as possible.
