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.

sorry about the alignment it screwed up. I want to mount hda5 so that when i type in /mnt I'll have my hda5 there as a clickable icon. I can't remember how to get it to mount automatically when mandrake 10 boots up. Also Linux can write to Fat32 right.
