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 dual boot system (Windows XP Pro and fedora core 4) and would like to access some files in the ntfs partition while using linux. Is it possible to access it only by mounting it? How can I achieve that?
You should be able to mount it by creating an entry in fstab and then just by the mount command.I would like to state however that you should not remove any files from the ntfs partition when it is mounted in adual boot scenario, that sends windoze into a hissy fit when and if it will boot again. For more info:
and google for mounting ntfs partitions.
Hope that helps.
You will need NTFS support enabled then. This may involve recompiling the kernel to include the support, or downloading a module and installing it (I believe this is what is done under Fedora, for example).
