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've just installed Mdk 10.1. How do I mount my slave disk? There is a win_c2 folder in my /mnt directory which is empty. I don't know where it came from.
The disk has one fat32 partition. In diskdrake there is a mount option, but where do i mount it? I tried /mnt, but mdk told me that this directory should be left i the root file system(?). I don't know why, but I post my fstab file here:
According to your fstab file, it looks like it will attempt to mount the windows partition in '/mnt/windows' so you may want to make sure that the folder /mnt/windows exists, and then try to mount /dev/hda1. You can do this by opening a terminal and issuing these commands (as root):
Hda1 is my windows partition where I have win 98 installed. This partition is mounted. On the same hard disk is mdk installed in another partition. But, on my other hard disk a FAT32 (windows) partition is unmounted. This is the only partition on this disk. I would like to mount this one.
