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 having troubles mounting my windows drives and haven't seen a scenario like mine posted:
I have three drives. 1 ide for linux only. 2ide in RAID0 for windows only....when i boot, linux boots, if I press esc at the right time during bios, i get boot menu and can select the proper device to boot windows.
windows and linux are not on the same drive.....can i mount my windows drive from linux? I would like to to transfer files between OS's with out using a second computer to temporarliy store files while I reboot my other box.
It's not necessarily a good idea to try to write to your Windows drive; some systems seem to encounter severe difficulties with this. So perhaps that why read-only is automatically on. However, are you trying to write as a user, or as root? If as a user, you can add yourself to the disks group.

I'm only trying to access windows files from linux, i don't intend to write to windows.
I've been trying in root user, but finally figured out my problem.
I need to use /dev/hdg1............my windows drives are on the 3rd adn 4th ide port as a raid0 config. I found the device name by looking in partitioning information in WEBMIN.
