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 set up a logon script to mount several remote directories on logon. so far i've used a "sudo mount ...." command from my user which has sudo access to the mount command. while there aren't any users on my system that i don't trust with mount, I would like to set up my system so that less privileged users would also be able to have a remote directory mounted on logon. I've considered adding a line to fstab for each users home but this also seems rather inane, especially on a system which many users. Is there a way to set up one statement in fstab (or elsewhere) that allows any user to mount their respective home dir without need for sudo or other elevated privileges? this (and a few variations) is I've tried so far but mount doesn't seem to interpret variables from fstab. any ideas?
while i'm on the subject, perhaps someone knows the answer to this one. using my current startup script, when I logon from a console the remote directory mounts properly. However, when I login from a gdm session, the directory shows up as being mounted 3 times. any idea why gdm is mounting this multiple times? BTW, the script in question is my ~/.profile
i'm not trying to mount my entire home directory from the server, i want to keep my home directories on the workstation, and mount the remote home directory as a subdirectory within the home directory like so...
