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.

The action failed because your command was wrong. It should have been something like
mount -t vfat /dev/hdb1 /mnt/music
However, your partitiontype could be ntfs too. Then you have to replace vfat by ntfs. But try
mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/music first, that should do the trick.
Another thing that could have gone wrong: I don't know which of your disk is the first, where you installed linux and how you partitioned you other disk. If your first disk is for the music it would be hda, instead of hdb. If you have a logical partition it would be a 5 or more, instead of a 1. If it's your second partition on that disk it would be 2 etc. Maybe you should give more information, like disk, partitioning scheme and filesystem, so we can help better. Than I could also tell you how to make linux automatically mount that partition when booting.
mke2fs: Device size reported to be zero. Invalid partition specified, or
partition table wasn't reread after running fdisk, due to
a modified partition being busy and in use. You may need to reboot
to re-read your partition table.
My drive ia a SATA hard disc. I had reboot the system and go into the BIOS and it said :
SATA Port1 Configure as [IDE Pri. Slave]
This drive is just out of the box, I did not make any partition to it
Think you must boot into the OS on your first harddisk, and then reinstall grub. Must be a command like grub -v install or something, but check the manpage first, cause I've nearly forgotten the command.
