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.

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.

The ipod is mounted to my desktop automatically and gtkpod can read the db file, etc. I add songs to it but when I go to sync it, I receive an error message telling me that it is a read-only file system.
How can I go about mounting or changing the file permissions for it and what exactly do I type into the command line?
I think what it needs it to be mounted with the "users" parameter. I don't use Ubuntu, and I don't know how to set the mount parameters when it's automounted. Perhaps there's a way to set it graphically? Like right clicking on it, and setting a parameter that way?
According to this it looks like you need to edit /etc/auto.master and set the parameter esers there.
