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.

Ive got win2k and redhat9 living happily on a 80gb ata harddrive.
Ive recently added a 20gb HDD as slave to this drive, which i plan to store mp3s and such on to share between both OSs.
The 20gb is logical FAT32 and runs fine in win2k. But I cant seem to get redhat9 to find the drive at all (which should be hdb).
I use grub as boot loader, and during startup of redhat it does seem to recognise it coz the command lines read (along the lines of) ...
hda ATA etc.
hdb ATA etc.
but once logged in as root theres no sign at all of hdb. The gnome and KDE hardware managers only give details of hda.
only gives info on hda.
what could be causing the problem and how can i get redhat to find my second drive??
some additional info that might be of interest
- my mobo supports raid but i dont have it enabled
- i formatted and partitioned the 20gb in win2k
- both my hdd are seagate 7200 rpm with no known disk errors
and i'm a linux newbie so plz dont go over my head with jargon
