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.

Hi! I am a NEWBIE. I know nothing about linux. But my friend says linux is good. So, i kept a copy of fedora core 10 i386. My fiend has a lot of movies about 100 in his ipod. So, i took it. It contains lot of viruses and i opened the ipod in windows but my windows has malfunctioned due to the virus. So, i have installed the fedora core 10 i386. I have some important information in the windows ntfs partitions. Please tell me how do i mount those ntfs partitions. Please, tell me this is urgent.
you will need to get familiar with few things first, use/read the manual pages. You can have it by opening a terminal (a dos like shell) then type "man" for the commands you wanted to know/read about. Get familiar with these three commands: "fdisk", "mkdir" and "mount", for example:
user@host--$: man fdisk <Enter> [this will open you the help/manual files for the command fdisk; to scroll down press space bar, to quit press "q"]
Use fdisk -l command to locate your NTFS volume/partitions to be mounted.
I worry about these viruses, linux is not immune. Moreover, if you end up saving to an external medium and that is introduced to a Windows system it will infect that system. You could attach it to a Windows system as a slave and run something such as AVG from the 'master' drive BEFORE you open the infected partition. If you have already done this then ignore the above.
