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.

this is my first post I know a little bit about linux, but I've been searching for a strong community and now I've found it !
I've got a NTFS partition that I want to access to in linux (Read Only, of course). I installed NTFS support (Redhat 8.0 using 2.4.18-19 kernel) and I can mount it via shell. When I try to make my partition auto-mounting by adding the proper line in /etc/fstab, I can't read mounted partition with the standard user. If I go root, I can read. How to resolve this ? Thanks and keep Linux working
umask 007 means owner and group get rwx permission and everyone else gets no access. gid=201 sets the group owner to group 201 which isn't a pre defined group.
as root edit /etc/group and add this line, be VERY careful of mistyping:
broken down this is:
*lusers = group name, use whatever you want
*201 = group id, it doesn't have to be 201 but has to be the same as what you used for gid= in fstab. If 201 is taken, pick any number over 200 to be safe.
*myacct,myroomie,newdude = list all users who you want to give access to in a comma seperated format with no spaces.
