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 running Red Hat 9 and Windows ME on the same machine, and my
default boot is into Red Hat. In addition, the two OSs are running from
different hard drives.
In addition to the superuser, I have one other general login, which is
what I use most of the time. I have the VFAT file set up in FSTAB
to mount under /mnt/dos and to mount automatically.
The problem is, no matter what I do, I cannot change the permissions
to allow me to access the windows files with write mode unless I'm
in the ROOT login. I know it can be done but so far it has defeated me.
I checked the permissions for /mnt/dos and the owner and group are
'root' and the owner is the only one with write permission. When I try
to change the owner, group or mode, I get an 'operation not permitted'
