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.

SO iedited my etc/fstab, to mount the good old windows partition, which incidentally workd fine from command line if I mount it after I boot.
When I restarted computer I got a "WARNING: wrong format on line 10 in /etc/fstab." Then it boots fine.
So I exchange that new fstab for the old one I had saved as a backup because I didn't want to fool with it right then.
I am really sure I did that, that I removed the one I meant to remove and put in place the old one that I meant to restore. No confusion there.
Next time I boot, I get the same error. The old fstab is in place...(and even the one I had added win partition to had only 9 lines.)
Whats up with line 10? Lets say I never even switched back...it was not there anyway.
Are you sure there isn't a line above the first line in your file? Maybe a spacer to get the beginning of the file down a bit to make it appear more organized? Don't forget that usually blanks also count as a line.
