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 have an iRiver iFP-180t 128mb mp3 player / fm tuner / recorder. I've managed to be able to mount it in Linux. It seems as though I can't copy any files with over 13 characters in their name (and all of my mp3s are neatly catagorized by Artist - Track# - Track Title) to the mp3 player. Is there any way to cut these filenames down to 13 characters (example "Sublime - 01 - Garden Grove.mp3" -> "sublim~01.mp3", which is what is automatically done using Windows Explorer in Windows 98) as I'm uploading them to the mp3 player? Thanks.
depends on how they're uploaded, if it's a standard proto, then it'd be simple to write a script to rename them and upload, otherwise i'd suggest moving all the files you want to a separate vfat partition, mount -tmsdos -oremount the fs then upload them from there
