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.

It's an old SCSI CD-writer. I removed udf from my fstab and everything seems fine now.
I have another question, before udev I had a symlink from /dev/hda to /dev/cdrom. But with udev I can't have this anymore, I can create the symlink, but after a reboot the link is gone.
What's happening and can I fix this somehow?
well, i don't know much about udev. is it a new way for automatic management of the /dev entries? i used devfs for a time and keep using it at an old server. but it's obsolet or not maintained anymore. there you had a configfile in which one could say to do symlinks and other things about configuration. as i've told i don't know much about udev.
try the following line in your fstab - since you can't use udf-fs (it's the filesystem used on dvd's) if it's not in there.
replace the devices with yours. if you'll mount a medium in /dev/dvd now, first iso9660 (cdrom) and then udf (dvd) is tried.
BTW: you don't erally need the link /dev/hda -> /dev/dvd it's just for cosmetics and every program that uses this link (if there are any) can be configured to use /dev/hda directly.
