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 have a Sony CyberShot camera that uses Memory Sticks. I also have a Sony Memory Stick reader that inserts into a PC card slot (MSAC-PC2 I think). It appears in the hardware browser as /dev/hde and it says that it's a FAT filesystem. I tried to mount it from the shell (mount -t fat /dev/hde /memorystick). The shell then says it doesn't support FAT. The Disk Management app was able to mount a USB Zip disk, and if my memory serves me correctly it was a FAT filesystem. Any ideas/suggestions? If I loaded Wine onto my computer, could I access the stick the way I could in Windows ( E: ) ?
I tried vfat and msdos but those didn't work... it said each was the wrong file type. I was reading other pages on the Net and some said that you have to load the FAT module before you can mount the FAT system. That module, and VFAT too, are already loaded but I still get the message that the fs is not supported by the kernel.
Do I have to recompile the kernel to get this functionality?
