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 appologise for the bad use of the forum, This is the first time I have posted into a forum. In the past I was using the windoze OS, and using it wasn't a problem, however product activation got the better of me and now windows is missing a few vital dll's.
Now, i have hdd's on my desktop, time to use WINE!!!
Here is a follow up topic,
Now that we've established linux seeing a fat32 partition, how do I get linux to remember seeing it after a reboot?
currently I have 9 fat32 partitons.
(hdb1 still not showing fat32 partition table in linux)
See the second post in this thread (by tuxrules). Specifically, where it's talking about "/etc/fstab". You need to add a line to that file. There's an example in tuxrules' earlier post. Also, run "man fstab" to learn more about your /etc/fstab file.
thanks for your help everybody. I was able to mount it manually but have not tried to edit the fstab file yet. I am also having problems connecting to my wireless network (which does not have an afforadble solution yet). I had to set up a dummy computer with WinXP and connect to the network via CAT5 cable from Linux machine to Win machine. It will work for the next 29 days (stupid windows needs activation.)
