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.

Well, i made a new Fat32 partition, and no matter what i try, mandrake wont recognize it...
Knoppix will.. and it works just fine with knoppix,
but in mandrake when i do /mnt/hda7 (thats what it is in knoppix so i thought it would be the same in mandy) it says that there is no hda7 or something like that... it can see my NTFS windows partition tho... dammit... i dunno what to do...
Oh yeah, the main difference between mounting and editing your /etc/fstab is that the modifications on /etc/fstab will be available only after a reboot or a manual mount. However, you won't ever need to mount the partition again... it will always be available
No problems . But good question about the access denied thing. Not sure, but try right clicking with the mouse right button >> properties >> permissions, and see if that would help. Usually, it's only root that can (u)mount partitions, but all users should be able to access that
