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 , i'm trying to mv some files from my usb stick to my debian 4.0.1 server
but when i stick it in ,nothing happens , i do a lsmod , one usb module is loaded, but i guess i need the usb_storage module ,i don't know if it's in the kernel , i use the kernel i got with the install, i can't modprobe ,do i ap-get install modprobe ,i'll try it now to start
to what MS3FGX said, i would add that you should first do
as root. This will tell what disks of any kind are attached and recognized by your system. After that you can do the previously mentioned mount command using the /dev location specified by fdisk.
the simple program usbmount can be used to automatically mount usb drives. other more sophisticated auto-mounting programs exist on the feature-full window managers like gnome, but usbmount is simple and minimal (personally, that's the way I think things ought to be).
ok, what i aspected , I wasn't thinking on automatically mounting the usb , i tried using mount , but i'm a semi noob sort of speaking
is that also the case with my floppy drive
I guess also then, i'm getting an "Error data CRC error:track 0,head 1,sector 2, ..you must specify a filesystem
well about nodes ,i started reading ,but am busy learning 10 things at a time ,so i'm trying to "digest" it all
i'll try the suggestions/advice and thnx MS3FGX & andrews-mark
well , i installed usbmount,but nothing, the usb ports are detected, but not the sticks, maybe kernel module issue and, but this is an old box so the usb was added and sometimes fails (with dsl and other os) it's something else , what's the other command to modprobe , I have a Debian Etch netinstall
it doesn't show up in fdisk -l , so no luck there,
i'll just have to upload the files , but that's what i'm busy learning now, and my fast-rookie-noob alternative is boot livecd do what i heve to do (basiccally adding the new website files in /www, hahaha)
and reboot in Debian Etch
