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 Slackware 9.1 up and running, kernel has been recompiled for Athlon arch, NTFS read support, 4gb memory support (1.5gb installed), and 4 channel sound. I want to add my 160gb windows XP ntfs partition to /mnt/ntfs for read-only access, followed some instructions from other sites I found, but it doesn't seem to work, may be I have wrong "umask=000"?
changed to user, same error. Also can I in this file change permissions for my cdrom devices /dev/cdrom and /dev/hdd so that any user can mount them. I have made shortcuts on KDE to both cdroms but tells me only root can mount them.
root@linux:/home/noah# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs
root@linux:/home/noah# cd /mnt/ntfs
