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 hate to ask this question because I've noticed it arising often when I searched but I could not find a straight answer. I am just a few days old to the linux experience.
I was trying to make it to files I wrote on a floppy disk during a linux session could be viewed on a Windows session but after many different tried at editing the fstab, I gave up and reverted back to normal. Or should I say, what I thought was default. Now when boot up, it tells me there is an error on line 7 (the line I've been editing).
1. Can someone tell me what the trick is to transfering files over from Linux to Windows (vise versa) via floppy disk?
2. Please help me fix my fstab errror? Here is my fstab:
Y0jiMb0 , it does appear to have solved the issue. I put a simple document from Linux onto a floppy and Windows read it fine. I see no reaason why it wouldn't work the other way around so thank you very much for helping me get this issue resolved so quickly!
