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.

You mean u want to mount your hard drive partition?
Then try 'man mount'
Basic syntax will be something like 'mount -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt/hd' if u want to mount 1st partition on primary master hard drive. 'ro' stands for read only - u can use 'rw' instead but never try it on NTFS partition (unless u want to wipe your data -> always mount your NTFS as read only)
If u r not sure which device your hard drive is try 'fdisk -l' to get a list of all available ones.
PS: u need to be root to be able to run both mount and fdisk
Edit: And plz note that the directory u want to mount hard drive to (in our case '/mnt/hd') must exist.
