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.

Unable to mount cd under user account [Still unsolved =(]
I have no clue what to do with this. While under root, it auto-mounts cd's with no problem at all. But when I'm logged into my user account, it won't mount at all. After running the mount command, even under superuser, I get
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
or too many mounted file systems
I've checked permissions, and they're alright. I've added the user to the different user groups (yes, I have added it to the cdrom group), as suggested by other people. I'm running a Sarge install, 2.6.8-1-386 kernel, on an Averatec 3200 laptop. Here's my fstab:
Add the group you want to the visudoers file with something like this:
%group ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/mount /cdrom,/sbin/umount /cdrom
then just type mount /cdrom as a user. You might have to type sudo mount /cdrom until you have rebooted.
