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'm trying to mount a seconday hard drive, it contains music files that I would like to play while on linux. I've had it mounted before, and i'm not real fimilar with linux and for awhile it would be mounted when I would load my linux partion. Now it's isn't mounted anymore, and i've forgotten how. The filesystem is NTFS, when it was monted before it was set up so I couldn't write to the disk, just read from it. And that was fine.
How do i go about mounting the drive under SuSE 10. On KDiskFree, it has the drive listed and the mount point is /mnt/ddrive
when I right click on it there and click mount it says:
To mount the drive for the user with user id 1000 and group id 102 (check in /etc/passwd and /etc/group for yours), you can use the following if the partition is /dev/hda1 (this is common on dual boot systems but not guaranteed - please check with fdisk -l):
mount -t ntfs -o uid=1000,gid=102,umask=000 /dev/hda1 /mnt/ddrive
If you're going to use it regularly, it might be worth adding it to your /etc/fstab file so that it gets mounted at boot time. The users option is so that non-root users can mount/unmount it:
