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 have a winshit mounted drive that is fat32 and the other is ntfs. of course, i cant write on the ntfs. but the thing is that this is my largest drive. i cant install anything on the fat32 drive. i know theres that program called paragon ntfs that allows to write on ntfs drives, but it costs way too much for me.
when i installed winshit xp, i didnt have the choice between fat32 and ntfs. this ntfs drive is like 65go so its crappy because all i install goes there. especially now that i have cedega, i wanted to install big programs.
will i really have to format all my drive in fat32?

At present, linux supports NTFS as a read-only filesystem. And I agree that by default XP uses NTFS, it's crappy. You're only real option for now would be to backup your data, reformat at fat32, and restore the data. That's the safest option.
