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'm able to read and write as a normal user with Konqueror when I click on that Home icon on the desktop. There's nothing special to do, because this automounts them when you boot. Now, if you don't want them mounted like that, there's other steps. NB: I don't mount my Windoze OS partition, just 3 with Programs and Data. I also have them backed up, so if something happens it's not a problem.
Originally posted by ChaosZ3RO I'm using Windows XP, but I have a seperate FAT32 that I store everything I use on. That's the one I'm trying to mount.
Okay, then, you should be able to mount it just fine. Mine are all FAT32 and I have no problem on either of my comps mounting under Slack.
Where are you at with the problem now? Can you mount it and read/write to it? If not, could you post the results of
# fdisk -l (you gotta be root for this)
$ cat /etc/fstab (you can be a normal user for this)
which makes the feller read only. The difference being rw as read/write, or ro as read only. Either one allows everyone (users) on your Slack box to see it, and mounts it (auto) automatically.
See how easy *nix is once the esoteric documentation is sorted out? Beats the pants off of that Gates feller's OS. Heck, his little diddy can't see my *nix partitions no matter what he does! Ha! Ha! I kinda like that

Originally posted by ChaosZ3RO Well I figured out my problem... -_- thanks to your suggestion for fdisk -l, I figured out I have no hda3.... the one I wanted was hda6 =\ Thanks for all the help though =D
That's why I suggested the fdisk -l output. Now, isn't it gratifying to fix your own problems in this wonderful Slack *nix OS?
