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 my first distro of linux (Suse 10.1) And am getting adjusted fairly well. I am finding in ALOT more responsive than windows. However Im am at a loss on how to do a few things. Mainly, mapping a network drive. Im not quite sure what its called in linux.
At work we have a wireless connection as well as a standard ethernet connection. I normally dont actully join the domain or a workgroup, I just plug in or attack tot the wireless for internet access and access to my folders on the server. The way I did this under windows was to simply use the "Map Network drive" option and type in the IP followed by the folder name. Example. //192.168.1.222/Storage Folder. And BAM! Instantly mapped folder.
Is there anyway to do something like this in linux without alot of hassele?
I guess, you must be using Konqueror. So just click "Run" (Run Command) from the KMenu (Similar to Start button in windows) and type /mnt/windows.
And there you go.
Note - In most KDEs you can also see the "Run" option by right clicking anywhere on the Desktop.
