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.

Im having trouble getting Slackware to let normal user accounts access my NTFS partition. Root can access fine, but thats not incredibly practical for everyday usage since id be more or less opening files from my NTFS partition the whole time im using the computer.
Add the proper entry to /etc/fstab . That's what this thread is all about. Here's a copy of my entire /etc/fstab file. Maybe it will give you an idea. I would help more, but you didn't give any information about what you were trying to mount. Anyways, here's my /etc/fstab file:
you need to add the 'user' option like you did with the CD drive. 'umask' determines who can read the files on the partition <--> 'user' determines who can mount the partition. Those are two very different things...
I think UDF is only found on some very recent DVD's... 99,...% of all CDROMs and DVDroms use iso9660. BTW, if in doubt you can always set the filesytem type for /dev/cdrom to 'auto', then the kernel will auto-detect the type.
