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.

Although I have compiled vfat and ntfs support into my kernel, I can't mount either drive. On mounting one harddrive I get the error, "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1, or too many mounted file systems." This is after typing "mount -t vfat /dev/hdb1 /mnt/hd2." I know this is the correct command because it's always worked before. On the other mount of type ntfs, I get no error message, but I cannot see my files. Got any ideas of what's going on. I just recompiled the kernel. Thanks, Bobby.
Here's, something even stranger. Root is mounting the drives. The funny part is, is that the drives can be unmounted. Once unmounted, they cannot be mounted again. Even when they are mounted, you can't read the files. Once unmounted they cannot be remounted. This is strange for sure. Thanks for the help, but I dont think it's the too many mounted drives issue.
Mount was indeed missing iso8859-1 support. Makemenu config has that number in paranthises under vfat support, but it doesn't seem to include it for some reason. To really include it you have to go to native language support and check that as well. One other thing that I did was reselect support for the dev filesystem. I did not select it before because the configurer said it was "obsolete". If that's true, how will I mount drives in the future, or how am I supposed to mount drives? Thanks
