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 want to implement a second Harddisk into my Slackware 10.2 System. This Harddisk was used in a XP System before.
Before I convert the filesystem into ext2, I want to backup some files.
Ok, the Harddisk has 2 ntfs partitions. The important files are on the second one.
The Harddisk ist connected as the primary device at the 2nd controller.
The command: mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc1 /mnt is working fine.
But when I want to mount the second one with mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc2 /mnt (or to any other directory) I get the following message:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc2,
missing codepage or other error
(aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
instead of some logical partition inside?)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
Output of dmsg | tail: attempt to access beyond end of device
16:02: rw=0, want=3145732, limit=1
NTFS: Could not read $Mft record 0
