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 partitioned my hard drive to be to for two File systems
I tried to format: mkfs.vfat, it says attempting to create a too large file system. and them it puts up a new promyt. it seems like nothing happens.
I tried to mount the new filesytem and it says " filesystem not supported by kernal. " and as for the /etc/fstab
I work on this machine though SSH and I hit enter after I was done putting in the new line so i assumed it was there.
I am very new to linux I catch on quick but some time get a little stuck
