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.

as you all know i am using mandriva ... installed wine.. installed utorrent thru wine..
the thing i want to know now is how do i change permissions of my dirves ...
enable view and modify for other groups and myself..... ???????
I take it you are trying to mount and write to the drives with files downloaded through utorrent, am I correct?
I would first recommend using one of the native linux clients. ktorrent is a fine program, the official bit torrent client is available for linux, azureus is available, plus about 10-20 more clients. (My fav. is ktorrent)
Secondly, most modern distros can read and write ntfs just fine--but it should come with warning. sometimes they can mess it up (though mine never have)
My best suggestion is to make a FAT32 FS on a partition you can share between windows and linux, you'll be much happier this way, i promise.
However, if you really want to work with NTFS, post your mount options for the NTFS partition.
