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 getting ready to build a new computer system. I am going to keep Windows and Linux on seperate Hard Drives. I was wandering if it is possible to have a third Hard Drive that both systems can access so I can store My Music and DVD collection and such and access the drive and content no matter if I am in Windows or Linux?
Distribution: Centos, knoppix, Fedora, Mepis, Zenwalk, Mint
Since most linux versions can read or mount NTFS partitions on installation or by installing ntsf-3g on linux on the few that don't. You can just format the third drive with NTSF, this way both OS's will be able to access the data on it.
I have almost the same setup sharing both ntfs and linux format between machines
Around three of years back I did the same thing but formatted the drive from linux but as windows partition so that windows and linux both could see it. And then mounted it in linux and used as if it was local to both windows and linux.
