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.

In SUSE I have a work around for this issue: I allow my user account to sudo and run things like umount, mount, and fdisk. Then I have a script that uses "fdisk -l" to hunt down the device, and unmount it. Every device I use has a unique size measured in bytes and I have front end scripts that pass the size along to this first script. So, the device is unmounted and then remounted as whatever I've decide. And it does not matter where the system decided to auto mount my device.
Additionally, I have added KDE device "actions" so that I choose which script runs as soon as the system tells me its mounted.
It's a convenient way to get my device mounted as I want it, and the fact that it was auto mounted does not matter.
