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 a strange problem when I try to mount one of my windows 7 partitions. I have a centos 6.6 with kernel 2.6.32-504.1.3.el6.x86_64.
On the one hand, I cannot mount the partition normally, meaning that if I simply do it with mount, it says 'unknown filesystem type ntfs'. But it does work with the mount.ntfs-3g command. It works only to the extent that it mounts it. However, when I try to access any folder, it says 'input/output error'.
My Windows 7 works just fine, I've never had any problems with my partitions or my hdds. For a while it worked fine, but after some time I came across this.
I tried to reinstall it, but that didn't work either. When I type modprobe ntfs-3g it says that there's no such module and I cannot find 'ntfs' in /proc/filesystems.
ntfs 3g might not be installed by default
-- from my Scientificlinux 6 install
yum search ntfs
----- it it is in the output , then ---------
yum info ntfs-3g
