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 trying to mount a fat32 partition and here is the line I put in fstab "/dev/hda4 /fat32 vfat auto,umask=777". The problem is when I log in as just a normal user and try to access /fat32 I get the following error "bash: cd: /fat32: Permisssion denied". Also I have noticed that the other entries have two numbers on the end and I was wonder what they were for. One more question that is slightly off topic. With vim I know you push i to inserted characters before the highlighted character but how do you inserted afterward.
you need to chmod the /fat32 dir so that others can open it. If you're using a gui you can probably change the permissions with a file manager.
For your second question post the lines you're talking about and we'll explain them to you.
I know in vi you just press i and then you can move the cursor to insert characters after the highlighted character. I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same in vim also unless I'm misunderstanding your question.
This is what I put into fstab for my xp partition:
/dev/hda1 /xp ntfs auto,umask=333 0 0
When I try to access it as a normal user I get the same error as before:
bash: cd: /xp: Permission denied
I want /xp to be read only because last I heard ntfs was still experimental with writing.
