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 need help mounting my hard drive in Fedora Core 3. I've tried a method through the terminal using this rpm file that I downloaded online for my kernel and then mounting using "mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/audio-video" but it always give me this "fs type ntfs not supported by kernel" error.
Here's the guide: fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?p=223661
If your partition identifier is not "/dev/hda1" substitute the correct characters. Click the "save" icon in gedit and exit gedit. Close the terminal. Reboot. Your Windows partition should now be available in the file browser under "/mnt/windows".
Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. Type:
Hit enter. Type "y" and hit enter. Type:
What exactly do I put for *.rpm? I tried leaving it as it, as well as /home/(username)/kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.9-1.667-2.1.20-0.rr.3.3.i686.rpm (which was where I downloaded it to). It gave me all these errors. I skipped this part, then continued this twice, restarted my computer twice yet /mnt/windows has nothing in it. Also note I see the fs type not supported error and [failed] when I load up Fedora.
I really don't know what to do. I'm pretty much a Linux here.
EDIT: I've also tried directly installing the rpm by double clicking on it, it says it's already installed.

Nvm, I use the su command to install, it claimed it was installed already. Then I did the rm *.rpm and typed in y and <enter>. I went on with the rest of the instructions, but it didn't affect it any. I still got the mount error when loading up Fedora and nothing was in /mnt/windows.
Originally posted by Seventh This link should help you out. Seems like there's an RPM out there that should make things easier.
WOW... it actually worked! A few questions though...
I have a SATA hard drive with Windows/Linux on it, and I got that mounted to mnt/Windows.
I also have an IDE hard drive with all my stuff on it.
Can I just replace the mount point with like /Windows and /Extra or something better than that and then those folders will correspond to the drives?
If so, how do I remove the old mnt/ stuff?
I put in verbatim what you had in the quote there and it didn't work, but when i replaced hda with sda it all worked. if the IDE hard drive is the secondary hard drive, how would i reference that to mount it?
please respond soon i need to access my stuff from linux
