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.

View Linux on Windows
I know you can view (and not write) your Windows mounted hd on linux. Is there any way to reverse it? VIew my linux hard drive on windows? I want to transfer files from my linux to my Windows without useing a network, burning cds, and all the other long ways. Is this possible?
This won't work, if your partition isn't ext2 or ext3. I installed Fedora Core 3 on my machine on the free space I had on the drive, and it formatted it as LVM (8E) -- and there are currently no tools to read this partition under Windows -- unless anyone knows any?
captive-ntfs work very well and allows for full read-write functionality because it uses the NTFS drivers from Windows to do it. You can download it from almost anywhere. But I have a tutorial that explains doing it under KNOPPIX for Windows password resetting, but the basics should be the same...
In order to see my linux partiton under windows I use Total Commander, something like norton commander. on the website of the producent www.ghisler.com is a plug-in which allows Total Commander get into ext2 file system in a read- only mode.
