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 a HDD problem that is driving me crazy. I recently installed Mandrake 10.0, after having used 9.2. After the install, I cannot find some HD partitions that showed up ok in 9.2. I installed 10.0 in "existing partitions" and I did not choose to upgrade, but clean install.
Here's the deal. I have two HDDs, a 40GB and a 120 GB. The 40 GB is split into two partitions, both NTFS. The first, which Windows calls "C:" is where I have Windows XP. The second, which Win calls "E:" is where I keep windows program files and other data. The 120GB has Linux on one partition, and the other, larger partition is FAT32 (Win calls it "D:"), and has primarily media files that I wish to share between Win and Mandrake.
The C: drive mounts under /mnt/windows and I can read it no problem. The others I cannot figure out how to mount. I have looked at other posts here and I can't figure it out. When I go to diskdrake, I see in hda the /mnt/windows parition (hda1), one called "hda5" that has a "/" in it, hda6 is a linux swap partition, and hda7, which I have mounted at /mnt/partition2/ and which contains a dir called "erik" (my username) with a few files in it. under the hdb tab there is a 7.2 GB part called hdb1 that is gray and says "/mr" and is mounted at /mnt/hdb1 and which appears to be empty. The rest of the drive appears white and empty.
I know there's probably a better way to explain all this, but I can see all the data from windows, but I can't see it in Linux. What should I do?
