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.

My problem is, that I'm not able to get write-rights for my windows XP NTFS Partition. I tried it as root, but after closing the dialog, all changes are away.
Can someone help me? (Sorry for my bad english)
Is linux supporting write access to a NTFS partition now? I think I have read it many times that the write function to NTFS partitions is still experimental and quite dangerous coz it will destroy your data...
search from this forum with the keyword "NTFS" to find out more.
Not really - with the first driver in 2.4.xx there's a real chance of corrupting the filesystem - The latest driver introduced in 2.5.11, has some write code, but it's very limited. The driver can overwrite existing files, but it cannot change the length, add new or delete existing files.
