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.

well one is seperate hard drive, formatted in ntfs. the other is only a partition on the same drive as RH9. but i don't think i am gonna need anything from it. the 60 gig hard drive is what i use for all my data. so i guess all i need is that.
well without the correct drive labels, there's not much i can do for you. i guess install the rpm and then in the command line type this command as root:
that's an "L" after the hyphen... a little "L" that is...
post the output.
also better you know this now, that you won't be able to write to your windows partitions. writing to ntfs is very, very, dangerous. the most you can really do safely is view files. did i mention trying to write to an ntfs partition is very, very, dangerous?
well you could try to use partition magic 8 in windows to convert from ntfs to fat32. it's not free though and i don't know if it will mess up your setup in windows. as far as H:\, that doesn't really help me. running /sbin/fdisk -l will though.
remember that's a lowercase "L" after the hyphen.
edit: to directly answer your first question, you can use those files, but only read them. not write to them or execute anything on them via wine if you set up wine to use your existing windows partition.
