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.

Hi friends,yesterday i received a pen drive from my friend,when i trying mount it in ubutnu 11.10,it got failed,
what i noticed is that, my pendrive got detected and the device file is /dev/sdb1, which i got confirmed from /var/log/syslog file,but failed to mount manually
me tried to format it using vfat but still failed to mount,the interesting part is that it working like a charm in windows 7.
Try to cd to it, as in cd /media/thumbdrive, to use my example.
If you mount a drive successfully from a terminal, all that happens is the command prompt returns after the command is completed. This, in the absence of any error message, generally indicates that the device is mounted.
You could also run the command
to see if the device now appears in the Mount TABle.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.
I've had a similar issue just recently, my old laptop will not detect my new usb flash drives but my new laptop will. They both have Debian Squeeze. The issue is my old laptop doesn't recognise newer usb devices while my new laptop will recognise all. Your problem may not be an OS issue but a hardware issue instead if you are using this on a machine different to the one with Windows 7.
