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 done configurin my Network devices and my NTFS access. Thanks for your help.
My doubt now is that i can't mount my USB Memory drive. It's already formatted as an EXT3 partition but FC2 didn't recognize it.
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: TwinMOS Model: Mobile Disk Rev: 7.77
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
USB Mass Storage device found at 2
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
SCSI device sda: 256000 512-byte hdwr sectors (131 MB)
sda: assuming Write Enabled
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
sda: sda1 sda2 < sda5 >
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
inserting floppy driver for 2.6.5-1.358
floppy0: no floppy controllers found
i'm having this problem too... my system (running fc2) acts like it doesn't recognize that sda devices exist #fdisk -l lists only my hda devices and doesn't say anything about sda's, but #dmesg tells me that it found a two port usb hub, but that doesn't help much as the tower has 2 usb ports and the monitor has two usb ports on the side and two more on the bottom.... i'm fairly certain that i have the monitor hooked up properly to use the 4 ports it offers, so which two is the system detecting?
also, how do i check whether the ide-scsi and usb mass storage modules are loaded? and how do i load them if they aren't already? is there something else i should try that i just haven't thought of (or more likely heard of) yet? this is the third thread i've posted in about this and the @%^%$#^^$$# thing still won't work for me..... TIA to any and all who can help...
PS: i know the drive works, b/c it mounts perfectly on my friend's fc2 laptop....
trouble is, it won't let me mount.... that's the whole problem.... "/dev/sda1 is not valid block device" nor are sdb, sdb1, sdc, sdc1, etc.... i've tried them ALL (as in a through z with and without 1) and NO sd? devices are "valid block devices".... also i've already edited fstab about 53 times (give or take).... lol i think im just gonna hafta kill the machine.....
Aaaah, life is so great with a 2.6 kernel and hotplug and udev...
Give it a try. You will just stick the pen into the slot and your modules will get loaded automagically and you will be able to mount it right away.
And install hal and gnome-volume-manager and it will even mount automatically and place a shining icon on your desktop to click
I call this simplicity.
