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 using Redhat 9 and Mozilla as the default browser .On getting to a site on my browser(Mozilla) i can not download any file.
When i click download the messege comes to ask if i want to save to disk.If i click "Yes" all the open windows of mozilla automatically close even those from which i would be not be downloading.I tried to download Opera and this kept happening then i tried also to download the yahoo messenger for Linux and same thing.Think will jus do it in windows and then install from Cd or something.
Also how do i access non-Linux drives ??Like in my case i have 2 hard drives(40 gb each)
One is partioned into 4 parts(C=FAT32,D=NTFS,E=FAT32,G=FAT32) the other is partioned into 2 parts one hosting Linux and the other half is FAT32.I want to access the FAT32 drives is that possible?How?
Well, about your first questions, I dunno . About access to FAT32 and NTFS I do, know. First, as root (use su command) create a folder at /mnt/ with a name you may want to call your windows partition. Let's call win_c. Then make a directory there:
then find the file called fstab located at /etc. You must be root (use su) to write to this file. There, add an line similar to this:
This will give you full read and write permissions, assuming that your windows partition hda1 (your first partition) is of type fat. If you want to have access to other partitions, make another line and replace the "hda1" with the partition you want to access. Keep in mind that you need to create a directory to "mount" your partition whenever you want (as we did with win_c, you could create a win_d or whatever you need) This will also work with NTFS partitions, but you won't be able to write them, but read them without a problem.
Hey Mega am back....this is what i did..I created the folders in /mnt/ and edited the file fstab from the indicated points however when i mount win_c or any other i get nothing i cant read the files which are on that part pf the hard drives.
Do i need any additional memory or wht to mount those drives?
