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 had originally posted this over at newbies but received no response. After having read a few helpful pages I have been able to get my RH9 install to recognize my lexar 4 card reader. What I have done:
3. Added the cfc, smc, mmc, and msc files to the mnt directory.
1. I do not know where to put the script. I had it in root but the cd player wouldn't work on loading.
2. The different card formats seem to change their lun position (ie: the mmc device has shown up as both sdb1 and sdc1 across reboots).
3. Can I do away with the script if I recompile the kernel to probe for multiple luns? I believe the answer is yes but need to learn to recompile a kernel at this point.
4. When mounting the device after running the script post-boot I cannot write to the card. My first guess would be that this is an ownership problem but figured I would include this as this is about where I stopped trying to make this work-just building up the motivation for another salvo.
