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 first made grub with Kubuntu, on /dev/sda1. On all installations I have grub written to /dev/sda, but with this installation I do not recall an option presented for grub... I wonder if it even matters...
Actually you'll need Grub only on one distribution and let it write on /dev/sda. There is however one limitation, if you have 64bit and 32bit systems on one and the same computer, you cannot boot 32bit systems with Grub from a 64bit system and vice versa.
Also, within my file manager, I can access all the other partitions, except 1. I can not access (it does not see) /dev/sda3, which is a media storage partition, formatted in FAT32, so I can use the HDD in other machines with that big proprietary "broken-window" OS.
That drive would be nice to have back. I recall mount-options during openSuSE's installation, and by default /dev/sda3 (FAT32) was set for mount point: /win, or something like that. I probably didn't need to put a mount point there.
mh, I don't know what you mean, but in order to access one distribution from within another, you'll have to mount it anywhere in the filesystem, so you should create any empty directory, for example /mnt/kubuntu
