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.

what's the fstab for auto mounting the NTFS, i had a wicked kernel panic and i had to re-install my RH9, and i didn't write down what i did. I can only see NTFS part as root in the command line... here's what i have so far... this time i am writing this down
I tried those two commands after installing the correct RPM for NTFS support for souceforge for the correct kernel that i have. I get the message:
bash: /dev/hda2: Permission denied
ive tried using hda, hda1, and various others. The NTFS partition im looking for is the primary master harddrive, with it being only one partition. with RH9.0 being on the primary slave in its standard 3 partitions. and yes i was under root when trying it. Does anyone know what happened? what went wrong?
k, i know what when wrong, i just found out (explaining the editing of this post). i downloaded and installed the i386 rpm and i just learned that my processor is a i686... can someone please tell me how to uninstall the package i just installed please?
I also had to install NTFS support, as per an earlier reply in this thread.
Also, like you, my windows NTFS partition is a monolith, consuming all of my primary harddrive, with all the Linux partitions occupying the slave drive. If you have RH9 like you say, this ought to work.
PS: Not to offend you (I did this, myself, so I assume others might be as stupid), but did you remember to create the 'windows' directory in /mnt?

I couldn't remember to create the windows directory, as I didn't have that knowledge to forget in the first place
my problem now is actually that i installed the wrong rpm. I installed kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i386.rpm
when i should have installed kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i686.rpm
So i try and install the correct one and says that it is already installed.
and then i try and uninstall the other package kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i386.rpm but it says it doesn't exist. I have tried using
rpm -e kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i386
but still a no go. does anyone know how to find and remove this stupid nuisance?
