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.

If you have other computers on your network go into konquoror and type in the address bar smb:/// and that is how you access other computers. From windows, go into network neighborhood and search for 'localhost', you should find your computer but won't be able to access files becaues you proably don't have sharing set up. What distro are you using? If you are using mandrake you can go into the control center and then go into mount point and in there is a thing you can set up for file sharing. This intergrates file sharing into nautilus and konquoror so all you have to do is right click and select share. If you want to right to the drive from windows. Right click on the folder you are sharing and go into permissions and give 'other' write permission or go to the folder you want to give permission to in command line and type
"chmod 777 directory"
(wow, I typed a lot )
if you don't need to access your linux files very often, you could do what I do, and use a program named "explore2fs". It's freeware, and you can copy files on your ext2/3 partitions overto a windows partition.
