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.

BobNZ : the article talks about reinstalling the kernel. If you don't know how to do this then you should probably read up on that first. However, you probably won't even need to recompile your kernel because many/most distributions come with USB as standard, so you can probably skip this section.
I've got Fedora Core 2, and it seems that my USB Hard disk works on it. I'm a newbie, and I'm guessing that added the line to /etc/fstab is to automate the mounting process? Also, will this /dev/sda1 mounted on mnt/USBdrive work if I replace the USB hard disk with my card reader and vise versa? And one last thing, if I get it to work, how do I automate it in Gnome? Is there a way to add a icon like the floppy or cd-rom drive?

And Question: How to extinguish a light-emitting diode on USB flash drive after a command unmount?
you do not want it to stop until the usb flash device is finished writing to the card....! linux has a delayed writing stategy unless you specify sync in the fstab spec for it. it'll go out when it's ready, unless there is something seriously wrong, it will go out
apparently hotplug start/stop/restart handles it most of the time
I see :
scsi2 : ...
USB Mass Storage Device found at 2.
But nothing else (no text like "sda: ...").
So, I do not know the device name to use for mount,
and do not know where to go (the article doesn't say).
Please help the newbie. I use PXA linux 2.4.19 on Intel's pxa255 machine.
