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 have read a previous thread post here on this. But I want to make it accessible not just to root. I'd prefer mounting my D partition in somewhere like /home so that other users have permissions to it. or, is there I can access entire folders temporarily? I'd prefer to work with the files through Konquerer.
Originally posted by PhuckFonix What does ro(root?) and owner mean? I'm going to try to mount FAT32(vfat). Actually... what does each parameter mean?
ro means read only, and you don't need it if it's vfat, so don't add it. Noauto tells it not to automount during startup, so you'll mount it laster by typing 'mount /mnt/windows', user means that only the user that mounted it can unmount it(I think), users means all users have access to it.
Okay, I think I'll have to remount the mounted ones for the fstab to apply the new settings. I tried "unmount /mnt/fat-g" but that doesn't work. Also, how do I remove directories? I can't rm directories.

Why do you have seperate partitions for /usr and /home?
secondly, for me to mount things in FC1 and Slack, I think its mount /dev/hda1 or whatever you hd is. It works for me, so try that.
Oh yes, but with slack there is a problem with that. Sec, Ill get youthe proper fstab for the slack mounting and permissions. Even with defaults 0 0 you wont have the proper permissions. Put this in instead.
