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 just installed redhat 8.0 finally. Never have gotten to run it in three years of trying. lol Bad media and other stuff. Anyway, i like it so far only i cant see my windows drives! Sure would like to play some mp3s or videos. Also, redhat detected my via onboard audio but no sound. Running an ECS K7VTA3 3.1 mainboard with a kt333 and vt8233a chipset. hda1 is primary windows partition. hdb5 is linux and hdb6 i believe is fat32 part. ? Thanks for any help.
hey 404 why don't you start your own help forum, so you can spend 24 hours a day answering the same questions 50 times, thus insuring that although everyone's linux box works, they'll never know why. It's the difference between teaching someone how to do something, and doing it for them.
Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day;
Teach a man to fish, and he'll eat for the rest of his life.
Or something like that
Of course you'll have the really rich man, who pays the fisherman for fish everyday, and then of course the spoiled daughter, who the fisherman has to catch fish for everyday as well. Pretty soon, it looks like he'll have to move

bulliver - in the future, please report any rude posts or personal attacks to the mods... don't start your own flame war, just let us know about it, and we'll take care of it - thanks .
guess i'll stick to windows.... everytime i have asked for help i get called an idiot in so many words....i am new to forums also so searching them is not my first priority... As with anything else if you dont like answering the same question 50 times a day then dont offer at all. Every linux help site i've been to says this is the place for newbie's!! But you all expect the newbie to know it all! Thanks alot for making my third experience with linux a complete waste of time. Guess i'll give up on linux. I wont waste any else's time anymore. Thanks anyway......
It's mkdir /mnt/win to create the directory to mount it (you only need to do this once.) And then type fdisk -l and see what your FAT hard drive is called, it should be something like hda1.
Then type mount -t vfat /dev/???? /mnt/win
Where ???? is the name of the hard drive from doing fdisk -l.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
