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.

Okey, Sio I kicked out all Windblows stuff, and I'm running Slackware 9.1 only.
I'm running two harddrives, one 80 gig and one 160 gig.
I installed Slack on the 80 gig, and at that time, my 160 gig was NTFS, since I was in need of some files there.
I mounted the Win drive, got my files, and then deleted the partitions.
Then I created four Linux partitions of 40 gigs, which I wanna use.
I then did this in my fstab:
/dev/hdc2 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/hdd1 ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdd2 /mnt/hdd2 ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdd3 /mnt/hdd3 ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdd4 /mnt/hdd4 ex3 defaults 1 1
And some floppy and cdrom stuff, which I guess isn't all that important.
However, it would appear that Linux is not able to use that extra space.
I can't mount it, then I get the usual error message, unknown FS or too many mounted devices.
I also tried actually using the space, copying my movies over to /mnt/hdd1 which did not work, got an error message because I lacked space, and I can assure you, there was enough space.
I tired searching around a bit, but I never found any help about this exact problem, or anything that was close.
