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.

First of all, I apologize since I know this topic was addressed in similar posts. I did do a search and found some information, but I couldn't quite relate it to what I'm doing. Here's where I'm at.
I've installed corelinux and updated it to the 2.6.7 kernel (I selected the automounter v4). Generally, I can access the USB memory. When I plug it into the port, a message is displayed and I can mount the device and access files on it. I have it in my fstab so all I have to do is call mount with the mount point (i.e mount /mnt/usb). But I'd really like to access it immediately without having to mount it manually. In addition, I'd like to have it accessible by a non-privileged account. I did download 'hotplug' from 'linux-hotplug.sourceforge.net' and had no success. Incidently, I could access the USB memory prior to installing 'hotplug' from sourceforge (from above). (Please excuse me, I'm new to Linux and probably not understanding something.) Anyway, I'd like to know how to proceed in getting this to work. Any help is much appreciated.
