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 recently installed fc3 and i have 2 ntfs partitons that i need mounted. i installed kernel-ntfs and i could access them, but i edited /etc/fstab so that they would mount on startup and it denies me permissions unless i am root. my fstab looks like this:
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/server vfat defaults,user,owner,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdd2 /mnt/ntfs ntfs defaults,user,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win ntfs defaults,user,owner,ro 0 0
the first is one that works, but as you can see it is a vfat partiton. thanks
triet, the 3 in ur umask will take away the ability to execute and my handy dandy linux+ prep book (which i use to learn from) says that if you want to access the partiton then u need to have read and execute. all i had to do was add the umask and it worked fine.
