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've just configured an xp/redhat dual boot system on my home pc, and i'm having some newbie problems.
one of which is that i can only read my ntfs drive if i'm logged in as root user. if i login as myself (NWS), then i can't get to the folder because i don't have the "permissions". I've edited my fstab to look like:
The ntfs drive that i want to see is hdb1 on the last line. I've also tried using the lines gid=NWS and uid=NWS, but neither of those options work. Other umask options like the ones described on the ntfs project page do not work either.
What I mean is that I can only access my ntfs drive if I'm logged in as the root user. None of my other users can get to it, and I want them to be able to. My kernel supports NTFS read cuz I used the NTFS project page to download and install read support for the ntfs drive.
