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 have 2 hard drives: one is master and there is win95 and all other files installed on it, and second is primary slave with linux.
now i want to mount master drive to /mnt ( i want to listen to mp3 collection on it under linux.
# mount /dev/hda vfat /mnt/windows
mount it correctly? (providing that i already created a folder windows in /mnt)
# mount -t <file system> <device file> <mount point>
Also your device file was off(/dev/hda). You have to designate the partition your mounting on a hard drive which for the primary master drive will be in the form /dev/hdax where 'x' corresponds to the partition number on that drive. For a win 95 install that will almost certainly be hda1, i.e. the first primary partition on the drive since win 95 insists on being installed there.
