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.

Sorry if these have been asked before but i coudlnt find anything explaining easily via search.
I have just installed suse 9.2 but need a little help
1)When i boot from knoppix i can view and run programs off my fat32 and ntfs drives normally i.e. they show up. But in suse 9.2 (using kde) i can only see my linux partition.
Could someone explain how to go about making suse see my other hard drives?
2)I have an alcatel speedtouch usb modem. All my other drivers seem to of been installed but not this. Therefore i have to keep booting into windows to access the net.
How do i find/install/setup my alcatel speedtouch modem in suse 9.2 ?
3)Lastly when using suse 9.2 (kde) it seems slow at displaying things. I have a high refresh rate in good res. Im using a nvidia geforce fx 5600 suse seems to of installed the drivers fine but when displaying a new window or even simply scrolling it draws and refreshes very slowly.
Is there a way to fix this?
many thanks and apologises if these questions have been asked before.
Note, you will have to edit hda1 and hda5 to match your partition scheme.
You will also have to create folders in your linux file system. Mine are at /mnt. I did a MD win_c and MD win_d.
Once that is done you can mount the drives, or if you boot the system, it should now mount the drives at boot time.
As far as executing a program, on a windows partition, you would have to install and configure wine, or some other windows emulator. If all you need to do is open files, ie play mp3's, then you don't need wine.
