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've plugged in my k800i mobile phone using the usb cable but there was no indication of any kind that anything had been plugged in, no desktop icon and nothing in storage media in konqueror.
After a bit of browsing around I found that the phone itself had been mounted as /mnt/vl-hot/sda/vol1 and the memory card was mounted as /mnt/vl-hot/sdb/vol1
Ok, so I was able to browse through the phone and copy files to and from but because there is nothing in konqueror's storage media or on the desktop I couldn't work out how to safely remove or unmount the phone and I don't want to damage it by unplugging it.
A tried a few things in the terminal but umount /mnt/vl-hot, umount/mnt/vl-hot/sda gave errors that they weren't mounted. umount /mnt/vl-hot/sda/vol1 and umount /mnt/vl-hot/sdb/vol1 didn't give any errors so I assumed that had unmounted them but the phone was saying do not unplug the phone and I could still browse the directories and see everything on the phone.
I've tried adding entries so fstab to mount sda and sdb at /mnt/sda and /mnt/sdb respectively but I get errors about unknown filesystem.
I haven't tried any other devices as yet to see if this behaviour is the same.
But doing umount /mnt/vl-hot/sda/vol1 does not unmount or safely remove the device.
I've tried adding the above lines to fstab pointing to /mnt/sda1 and /mnt/sdb1 but when I go to storage media sda1 and sdb1 are shown as unmounted if I click on them it says they are already mounted on /mnt/vl-hot/sda1/vol1 etc.
fuser just gives me this - /media/sda/vol1: 3014
eject/dev/sda or eject /dev/sdb gives me this
umount: /dev/sda is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
eject: unmount of `/dev/sda1' failed
sudo eject /dev/sda does work and the phone tells me it is now safe to unplug it but it's still not ideal.
The missus won't do anything that involves command line, how do I get it to work the same way as it does in suse, debian and ubuntu? ie right click on icon in konqueror > safely remove or unmount.
At the moment I cannot get an icon to appear to do this.
