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 a triple-boot computer: OS-X, Windows 7 and FC 11. I predominantly use OS-X, which doesn't understand Fedora's ext4 file format. Everytime I boot up I am greeted with a window telling me OS-X couldn't mount the disk and asking if I want to Initialize, Ignore or Eject the disk!
Obviously, I don't want it to initialize my Linux drive, so I've been taking turns ignoring and ejecting. What I'm looking for is a way to permanently tell OS-X to ignore the drive.
Don't know, on linux you would edit /etc/fstab and you would use the noauto option to prevent the running OS from mounting this or that specific partition when it boots up. Somewhere OS X must have a similar file but not being an OS X user, I could not tell where, what it is named and whether it supports customization at all.
