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 just installed FC3 on my computer. I have a partition on my only hard drive that's about 20 gb in size, and it contains all of my music. It's a ntfs partition. I added a line to my /etc/fstab to automaticly mount it, however while using a regular user's account, I cannot access the drive. This is what the line looks like:
/dev/hda5 /music ntfs ro,user,auto 0 0 umask=0222
What's wrong with it ? Why are the permissions wrong, not allowing a regular user to view the drive contents ? The permissions were the same way even without the umask=0222 added onto it. I appreciate the help.
I have all problems fixed. I removed the /music directory I made, unmounted the partition, and removed the line from /etc/fstab. Then I did everything over, in a more logical order. It worked. I also just solved my sound problem. I now I can use XMMS to play music, and still hear sounds in gaim.
