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.

Anyone know how I can mount the usb memory stick in my Sony Clie so I can add/delete ebooks? Trying to get KPilot configured is an exercise in futility and all I really need anyway is memory stick access. I had this ability in Lycoris and it was great (unfortunately just about everything else about Lycoris kinda stinks) so thought I'd see if I could get working in slack which is now my only OS on the computer.
I have the 2.4.20 kernel compiled with all USB options including USB Mass Storage device turned on. (not moduled just ON -- i know big kernel but module installing/loading still has me completely baffled).
Oh btw in Lycoris the way it worked was I just tapped on the "MSImport" icon on my Clie and it was then accessible as a USB mass storage device (everything automounted in Lycoris which is also baffling how to do not that it matters I do fine with the kwikdisk program for cd mounting).
My /var/log/messages shows the device listed as: (if this helps)
Jan 5 19:45:38 spiderman kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:07.3-2.3, assigned address 5
Jan 5 19:45:38 spiderman kernel: Manufacturer: Sony
Jan 5 19:45:38 spiderman kernel: Product: Sony PEG Mass Storage
Jan 5 19:45:38 spiderman kernel: scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Jan 5 19:45:39 spiderman kernel: USB IRQ received for device on host 1
Got it! Clicked the MSImport button and rebooted which then changed Clie's status to "Connected to PC" and was able to mount it:
mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick
should be able to do all the modifications like I did the zip drive to make it mountable/unmountable/rw for my usernames now.
This is unbelievable!!! Every and I mean EVERY app I needed from windows is now handled in my 100% Slackware Linux computer now!! The KwikDisk utility is set to mount my cdrw, zip and now my USB stick in my Sony Clie AND it will even open up automatically the /mnt folder upon mount click!
Excalibur, you've done it again friend thanks a TON!!
Think I'll celebrate by beating up some Giants in EverQuest via winex now for a bit before calling it a night/morning.
