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've got slackware 10.0 using KDE 3.2 on a dual boot system. Windows is on my primary harddrive and linux is on my secondary harddrive.
When I am logged in as a root I can access windows but when I am logged in as a normal user I cannot. How can I fix this? I adjusted some parameters in the user account settings while logged in as root and nothing seemed to help.
add 'user' with out quotes in the option column of /etc/fstab. so you will be able to mount your windows partitions as a regular user. read 'man 8 mount' and 'man 5 fstab' for more information. below is my snip from my fstab.
Also, I should mention that the /windows folder shows up when I am logged in as a user. It just does not allow me to access the folder. There is a folder icon with a closed padlock icon over it (the /root and /lost+found folders also have this). When I try to access any of these folders KDE gives me an error message.
