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.

Is there a way to exchange files back and forth between Windows and Linux? I have Windows XP Home and Mandrake 8.2 on the same system and I need to pass a few files back and forth. I have been using a CD but Linux wont write to it and only read so its really only a one way deal.. I'd rather not have to use CD's if I don't have to. Thanks in advance!
Where the /dev/hdb1 corresponds to the windows partition on your harddrives (1st of Master for me). The /mnt/win_c is the mount point I made beforehand. The umask bit makes mine read and write-able by all users in linux, as only I use my pc and want complete access without having to su to root.
Edit: after adding that line, you either need to reboot, or I think just run mount /mnt/win_c as root.
