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 just bought a used ipod touch 2g. It works great and I used iTunes on a Win PC to upgrade the software to ios 4.2.1. However, my home Win partition is old and I want to get it to back up into my XUbuntu 11.10 pc. I googled around and saw that people were using gtkpod, so I installed that but my ipod doesn't show up there when plugged in using it's USB cable. I don't see it with blkid either.
I saw that people were having trouble mounting iTouches once they were upgraded to 4.2.1 back in 2010 using an older version of Ubuntu and different repos. Is there a way now to backup these devices in Ubuntu Linux 11.10...I have some apps I already paid for and don't want to lose?
Oh, my iPod is not jailbroken and I don't want to do so.
I did find out that my netbook which runs the older Ubuntu 11.04 auto mounts my ipod in Nautilus but I cannot find it as a mounted device in a terminal using df. I'm not sure which module the kernel uses to load this up. Could I just insmod xxx in XUbuntu 11.10?
