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 am running debian etch 2.6.18-5 on a thinkbook and I have it set to dualboot between debian and windows xp. To make things easier I added a 12 gig fat32 partition that is accessible to both OSs. For some reason when i am in debian I can only write files to this partition as root. How come I cant write to it using my regular user account? I have tried to chown -R all of the folders to the user but still it doesnt let me write new files.
Off-topic, but i solved this by putting all data on ext3 partitions, and then using the ext2fsd driver for Windows to allow me to read/write to those partitions. I almost never boot into Windows anymore, but--when I do--it works great.
