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.

im trying to mount my win created vfat partition, and im at a loss of what to input into the fstab file, is it possible to mount without editing this file? i have root access just not a clue what to do with the file, ive tried this,
[root@localhost kupo]# mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2
mount: mount point /mnt/sda2 does not exist
Thanks for the fast replys, worked like a charm
ive got another newbie question, on the gnome xwindow system, how do you make it so when you open folders, it dosnt open a new window, rather just use that same window in a new directory. whenever i use the x system to browse my directorys i end up with nine thousand windows to close (estimate)
In one of the open windows, select menu Edit->Preferences. Click on the Behavior tab, and check the box that says "Always open in browser windows". Close the windows. Next time you open a folder, it will stay in single window mode.
i have something else to ask:
i'd like to make a shortcut on my desktop at the folder /ceu/Documents and Settings/Serban/My Documents, but i'm not alowed.
when i try to acces this folder from command promt it reads the command until the first space so it gives me error. what can i do?
