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.

Hello, i recently installed Ubuntu Edgy Eft, for a fresh start, with my dual boot system (Win XP), but one of my partitions is not visible in Ubuntu that is in windows, it is a Fat32 partition, the idea being to be able to transfer files from Linux to Windows, does anyone know how to make that partition visible in Linux?, (to mount it), my other partitions are all visible, but they are NTSF, so they are almost useless for transfering data, any help would be great...

Where hdaX is your FAT partition. On my machine, my FAT partition is /dev/hda7. The umask=000 option allows any user to read, write and run files from the partition.
To save the file from mcedit, press F2. To quit, press F10.
In Ubuntu, you can also mount your NTFS partitions to be read/writable. In your /etc/fstab file, look for your NTFS line and change 'ntfs' to 'ntfs-3g'. Your computer will then use the ntfs-3g module to mount the NTFS. I've used this for writing, and although it is slow, it is reliable.
Hello, I have been facing this problem a lot today, I cannot change any system files per say, because as it says i am not "owner", this is the only account on the system, I am the OWNER legally, so anyway, i need to know what to do so that I am recognized as owner on my system any help? Thanks, MJ
