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 there, I seem to be having problems plugging in my External hard drive to my lappy runnin ubuntu 12.04. It was all fine till 10 mins ago when I restarted the machine and plugged it in. I now get this message http://antobbo.webspace.virginmedia....s_tests/HH.png
Can anybody help me with it please? what should I do?
NTFS? Plug it into a Windows machine, then unmount it properly (do not just unplug it), then plug it back into Linux and it should work. Remember to always unmount your external drives before unplugging them.
Done that, I am afraid it didn't work. I restarted my machine in windows, plug the external HD in and then unmounted properly. The restarted ubuntu plugged it in and the message showed up again. ANy other advice?
