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 very new to Linux. Two days ago I installed Suse 9.2. Love it, but I'm having a big problem. I've done a search of the threads and have not found a solution.
When I'm in normal user mode I can not save any files or create any folders in my drives. I always get access denied as a response. They are NTSF format. When I'm in root it is not a problem. I would like to be able to save things I download. It wont even let me save to the Linux drive.
Thanks in advance for help. Could we keep responses simple. I have no idea how to do anything. Does anyone know of a good Linux book?
In Linux, as a nomral user you can generally only write to your home directory and /tmp (which is for temporary files). This is standard practice in *nix operating systems to make sure you can't hose the system as a normal user. If you did something in your home directory and are getting permissions denied, post the results of "ls -l <filename>", which tells you the permissions.
