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.

On my system (PCLOS2007), I can't mount in the GUI by going to /mnt. But--in My Computer --> Media, there are icons for all detected partitions. Here, I can mount using rt-click. Only problem is the partitions are only identified by size---so I cant tell which is which**. One demerit for PCLOS (or maybe KDE??)---or just another example of how some things are easier in a terminal.
**To be fair, I have many partitions of similar size (See "Confessions of a Distro-hopper"..) Even so, listing things only by size is dumb.
Thanks for your answer. I just realised that I made a big mistake. In fact, when I installed linux on hdba, the partitions have been formated also on hdb. I think I lost all my datas on hdb. But there is something I don't understand because my hdb sizes 20 GB and linux created 3 partitions which total size is 12.79 GB. Is there any chance that the difference could be my datas ? How can I check that ? if the worst happened, is there a way to get back my datas ?
I went back to Gparted to recount the size of my partitions on hdb and it appears that my HDD was totally formated in 2 parts : hdb1 and hdb2 (previously, I didn't count hdb1, that's why I thougt there was a difference). As you told me, I did also fdisk -l on the terminal and it confirmes the same thing.
Is there any possibility to recover my files ? I write nothing on hdb
