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 that in my /etc/fstab for mounting my windows partitions, obviously the first two are network shares. The only problem is if I try and copy anything to and from I have to do it as root because my user doesn't get access to the files. It wouldn't be so bad if my user could use the copied files. I copied some songs over to my linux partition as root and I couldn't play them because it said I didn't have the proper permissions. Is there anyway to change it so I can grant my user read/write access of all the volumes? Thanks.
-----------from man mount
users Allow every user to mount and unmount the file system. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line users,exec,dev,suid).
Yea, I have some backup drives that are formatted in NTFS for my windows back up and I put songs on there from Linux and various other files. I'm not dealing with mount i'm dealing with /etc/fstab so it's auto mounting when I boot but apparently only my root user gets access to r/w. I'm sure there is some simple thing I'm missing but I can't figure it out.
well...i would not use ntfs-write ( it's experimental... )
and all of your drives are "ro" in fstab....? ( that's read-only ).
furthermore when you edit fstab-lines your dealing with the "mount " command.
