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.

Thanks for the reply and it worked for me successfully. Now if i have 2 different machines. One is having windows xp and the other machine is having linux. I want to mount the windows partition of machine1 on linux machine say machine2.
In the solution suggested by you, it is assumed that the windows partition as well as linux partitions are on the same machine. But how I can achieve the same if i am having 2 different machines ?
I don't know if it is possible to "mount" it, because you will have to have some sort of network connection. It is no more a problem of doing something with _your_ hardware. It is now a problem of accessing some other hardware. For that, have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_file_system.
For example, you can set up samba server, and access another computer as a share (akin to what we have in Windows).
There are many possibilities depending on your operating system.
