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.

Thanks bulliver, but I was being a little breif about 2.6.x.
There are practical reasons, as well, for me staying with 2.4.x.
I'll address those issues sometime, but right now I'm still
interested in knowing if any one has experience with KDE 3.5,
kded media manager, and kern. 2.4.x.
Sincerely, i dont think that there are good news for us (im facing the same problem as u).
while i dont mind to mount/umount/access devices throuhg CLI, i would prefer having a complete functioning KDE, but i think that it is not going to be possible (not without kernel upgrades), so im staying with the CLI.
Are you aware that you in fact don't need to use CLI to do the mounting? You can also create a (permanent) icon on your Desktop (right-click on Desktop, Create new ---> link to device, point to drive) and then mount/unmount it by right-clicking the device icon and selecting mount resp. unmount.
I'm usually doing it like this as I'm running a 2.4 kernel too. Additionally I'd have all KDE daemons deactivated in control center if I were using KDE right now.
Offtopic: Right now I'm using matchbox as my window manager. Anyone heard of that? It's quite nice...
