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.

Did the kmod-ntfs package get installed properly? That's the one that's supposed to contain the module.
Well I tried installing it through the command line and it kept giving me an error... I know you told me to post all errors but I don't think I can repeat it now... I went to fedora's website via firefox... What I did was download the two files that I needed and installed it using a package installer to be honest I don't know what one it does but it installed both those packages by double clicking them in firefox's download window and entering my root password a little window popped up and said checking dependencies it was missing something and it said installing dependencies afterwards it installed the kmod-ntfs package I repeated the same for ntfs-common package and it did the same... Is there anyway I can see if the packages installed correctly via command line???
I'm all set with my NTFS... Moving along nicely... Thanks guys for all your help and paintence... One more question though how do I get it to load up on startup... Also I noticed there was unmounting errors upon shutdown was I suppose to do something else before shutting down???
