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.

Acutally I only have two Linux partitions. My main Linux part and a swap part. My Home isn't a separate drive.
I can see the drive and access the data. Other programs don't seem to have problems. But while Konquer will see the drive, it tells me it's unmounted and won't give me the permission to mount. I use the shell and it tells me the drive is already mounted.
I'm sure it has something to do with my fstab file but I'm not for sure of the different configurations. I did make a change because HAL wouldn't let me see the drive directories but now I get Perm Denied. I probably need to read up in the fstab configurations.
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Assume you are using kde-desktop and konqueror:
If not on the Desktop, there should be an icon in the sidebar of konqueror called "System"
Click it and find a folder "Media" containing disks and cdrom.
You can link this folder to Desktop for easy access.
Or make an entrance in the menueditor 'kmenu' with the command
'konqueror system:/media'...it's an URL (And copy it to Desktop if you want)
Thanks for the input, but it's the System Icon that I'm refering to. I can get to the Linux drive in Midnight commander, in Thunar, I can even get to the files in System/Konquer but it's initial response is "Permission Denied" and then I have to type the address in the address bar. Once I've done that, I can use the back/forward arrows the move around, but I can just click on system and then click the linux drive. It's not a critical problem but I know it should work correctly and I'm getting tired of working around it all the time. As stated before, accessing the cdrom , after the above suggestion, isn't a problem now.
