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.

when im on root, it all works fine. but when im on my other user, i cant access my other windows partition etc.. nothing in my /mnt/* works... exept the cdrom when i mount it. please help me? some1? i hate being root!
ok jag tar det pa engelska, as root, add the account name you are using to the root group. this will give you some administration privileges, your English seems very good so I'll recomend this document to you http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/chap_03.html

Just a quick note, when you say devices, do you mean removable media? To access your floppy drive as your user account, type this command at your shell promt " mount /dev/fd0 " then to access your floppy type " cd /mnt/floppy ". Some devices such as the floppy do not automatically mount.
I know how to mount, and whatever- but; I cant acess my other harddrives... only as root. When im on root, i can see the files on the partitions and everything works fine.. but as my other user, hen i try acess my other harddrives- they look empty. i go on termian promt, i check there with the ls command- cant see anything. i type "su" "*my pw*" and i do ls again, then i can see all my files.. ive tried chmod, chown, nothing works... im very confused.. hehe. im a n00b in slackware
Worked for me. You may have to chmod the folder but not sure. errm I'm pretty sure you don't actually because I did not chmod my /fat-c and can access them from my normal user. Also if they are ntfs then you should put that instead of vfat. And also if it is ntfs then you don't want people writing to the drive. I think you can accomplish that in umask but not sure of the values so I'm going to leave that for someone who knows what they are talking about.
