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 know this question has been asked before a hundred times. But, I've read over all the questions and answers and am still being stymied. I'm trying to mount (read only) the Windows partitions (NTFS) holding my pix and music files. I've installed NTFS support (kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.athlon.rpm), and added what I believe to be the correct lines in /etc/fstab (see last two lines, /dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdb2) below), but when attempting the "mount -a" command in terminal (as root), I receive the following response:
[root@pia154-169 etc]# mount -a
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
or too many mounted file systems
Will someone take a peek at this fstab file and enlighten me as to what I've done wrong, and what steps in doing this job I've omitted or got out of sequence or whatever (as I fumblebutt around)? Some of this stuff is simply not intuitive and I'm not too proud to beg!
