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.

Is it possible for an OS in VMWare to access data on your hard drive that was created with your host, or other OS? For example, I have two vfat partitions because I'm dual booting slackware and win2k, could I access these drives in vmware?
I found the option! thanks. I went to "Edit virtual machine settings" and went to the options tab, and there was an option for "shared folders". I must not have seen this before. I'm just not entirely sure how to access this folder ...
All of my partitions are mounted in my host OS. My guest OS is windows 2000 so I can't run fdisk or mount drives. (Unless you can actually do this in windows and I'm just ignorant).
I was trying to use ftp, but I can't connect to my localhost at my localdomain. Is this simply something that can't be done with virtual computer systems, or am I not doing something correctly? I can't connect via http either.
I found an option to add a physical drive to the guest host install within vmware. I did this with both a reiserfs partition, and a vfat partition, and both were seen in "my computer" as drive E:. When I try to access this drive, regardless of the filesystem, I am told the drive is not formatted.
