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.

Basically, I have it set up to where I have all my partitions available in /mnt/ But when I try and save on them with my user account, it says that its read only, and I cant. So I would like to know how I can make it so I have the power to save on these with a user account. Thanks
Now this is odd, I used to have access to my D: and H: drives, that were located in my /mnt file. The files to access those drives are still there, but the data within them is not. All I have done since the last time I gain access to them is restart and used up2date
OK, I've added hdb1 to mount to the /mnt/Music Folder and hdb5 to mount to the /mnt/Music2 folder. Now how do I get those to stay mounted so when I reboot, they still are mounted. And how do I get it so I can write to them using my user account?
you need entries for /dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdb5 if you want them mounted automatically.
So instead of the Music line, you'll have something like
/dev/hdb1 /Music vfat quiet,iocharset=utf8,umask=0 0 0
You'll have to figure out the right iocharset. I think utf8 is fine but if you want to access it from windows, you might want a different iocharset. Just look around in the forum. There are a bunch of people who've posted their fstabs. You can probably steal the right entries from them.
