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 am a newbie. I installed a new hdd (I think it's sdb1) and attempted to mount it using Storage Device Manager. I went off on a little adventure trying to get things mounted properly and changed some mount points I shouldn't have.
Now, when I reboot I get the error: "An error occured while mounting /media/File Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery". I think I may have created media/file as an incorrect mount point.
I think I changed /dev/sda1 mount point to something incorrect. What should the mount point be for this? Also, I guess I can change the mount point for /dev/sdb1 (I assume this is my new hdd) to anything I want?
I have output from sudo bash boot_info_script.sh which I ran when I first set up linux if that's any help.
actually / is the root filesystem, you cannot mount your new drive as your root filesystem. I suggest you to find a convenient directory, for example /photos or /mydatafolder or /mymedia/music. You must take care about any configured automounter (so probably /media/music will not work if /media was used by automounter).
Thanks for the information about the fstab tutorial. I'm a newbie but I think I may have made some progress. I looked at the setup when I first set up linux. According to blkid output, my primary hard drive was /dev/sda. After I installed the second hard drive my fdisk -l shows my primary hard drive (The one linux mint boots from) as /dev/sdb. However the current fstab shows my primary hard drive as being /dev/sda. Apparently I made some incorrect moint points because of this mix up and using storage device manager didn't help things much.
Anyway, I think the solution is to edit fstab and use the UUID. I may be way off base here. Can anybody concur?
