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.

Been a *long* time since Knoppix was a 2.4 kernel.
Knoppix has native NTFS (read) support, and also has captive support for NTFS write. This uses the real XP drivers to handle this - but requires the XP partition to be accessable.
If you have a dead XP install, you are out of luck. As an aside, the captive project is no longer supported by the author - which makes using it very dodgy IMHO.
Distribution: Kanotix HD Install, Debian Testing, XP Pro,Vista RC1
With root permissions try typing "mount" to see what devices are mounted. hda, sda, etc. You should see a list of the hard drives. If it shows hda as an example, you can the do an "fdisk -l /dev/hda" to list the partitions and the type that they are so you can see which you need to mount as an NTFS.
I'd just like to say that knoppix isn't actually meant to be installed. (That's what it says on their website + forum). The installer is not very mature either. I recommend you download Debian if your interested in using it from your hard drive.
