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.

I have an extra 250gig IDE HDD that nothing is installed on or anything that Linux can read fine. I formatted it to FAT32 in Linux. However, it does not show up in Windows. This wouldn't be bad if the Java SDK will not install because X: is invalid AND I HAVE A PROGRAM DUE IN SIX HOURS.
Yes, it is there, but it considers it Disk0 and the Windows/Linux Disk1 (why/how this is I do not know)
when i right click the extra/250 my only option is to convert it to dynamic disk
i dont know if i want to do that
i just want it to appear in my computer i guess or at least find a way to get past the error when installing JDK
I guess you could try to resize it so that windows will recognize it - if that IS the problem. I know that the disk management utility in windows has an upper limit on the size of FAT partition you can create, something like 40G, although I've created larger ones using other disk management tools that windows has been able to read ok, so I don't really know if this will correct the problem.

Why don't u enable ntfs on linux then?
Either recompile your kernel with ntfs support or get kernel modules rpms from ntfs-linux project at sourceforge.
About Installing ATI drivers, try it, if you have problem post the details here so that we can help.
you don't need additional keyboard/mouse drivers, they'll run with generic support. what problem are u having?
I have fedora core 3 and i heard that ntfs really sucks even if you can enable it which im not good enough to
ive posted at least 10 times about the ati drivers
i downloaded the package, double clicked it, said it installed. this is where i am. i ahve no idea what to do after that to do things like: make 3d run deacently, enable a secondary monitor, change resolution up to 2048x1536 (it IS added in the list in that one text file, but i am not allowed to choose it prob since i need drivers?)
the keyboard has a bunch of hotkey type buttons that id like to set and the mouse has back, forward, and scroll buttons, none of them work. id say the scroll wheel only works half the time. numlock i have to engage at every startup.
