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 expect 10.04 to behave like the previous releases, where I boot into my Kubuntu, Then I open my file manager, Dolphin, and on the left bar "Places" is a list of all the partitions, numerous, that were present on the HDD, and all were accessible without any root folder voodoo, passwords, console, etc
I keep my OS partition small, and keep all my media files on another partition for safety. I have never had this problem before. All I want is to single-click on [whatever drive] in my GUI and read/write it.
Which files to write to sda4? I have 160GB of documentaries to put there. I need this simplified.

Is this a cruel joke?
All I need is to be able to write files into my /dev/sda4 ext4 partition, from my /dev/sda1 Kubuntu. Why am I prevented from that?
Why does it seem like I am intentionally left hanging here. I know this is easy for the veterans.
