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 have a couple of questions, and I have done research on both, but can't quite pull off what I am trying to do.
First off in Suse 9.2 when I unmount my flash drive, I can't remount it on the same USB port unless I reboot my machine. If I plug it into another USB port it mounts again just fine. This is whether I issue a umount /dev/sda1 or not. Any ideas on that? Relatively fresh suse install only a few weeks old.
Next, I am trying to convert to carrying my ssh private key on my flash device. I need to have access to it on Mac OS X (already working), and on trusted Windows machines (already working), however I am having issues with the linux size. I still have it formatted as FAT due to the cross platform nature.
The drive mounts fine, and I have full access, however ssh wants the id_dsa private key to have 600 for its permissions. I have tried some items like creating an fstab entry, however udev seems to be overridding that. I also tried modifying /etc/udev/permissions.d/50-udev.permissions, but that only modified the permissions for /dev/sda*, not for the actual directories on the flash, which still showed as 755.
