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 recently upgraded my fedora core1 distro on my Compaq Presario 2110 Laptop to 2.6-test9. (ACPI and PCMCIA work a lot better.) However, I lost DVD/CDR combo functionionality. I know there was some buzz about going to ATAPI for these devices over SCSI emulation, but I am not sure what to do. I have my kernel config'd the same as the 2.4.21 kernel that came with core 1 with respect to CD/DVD/SCSI emulation and grub, but it doesn't work. Can someone recommend kernel, fstab, and/or GRUB settings to bring the DVD/CDR drive back to life?
That will download the entire CVS tree and place it all in a directory named cdrdao, assuming of course that you have cvs installed on your system. Move into the cdrdao directory and run "./autogen.sh". This will create a configure script for you. Then just configure it with "./configure", with whatever options you want and then run "make". If everything builds correctly, then use rpm to uninstall your installed version and then run "make install". Isn't that bad. :) It will be installed in /usr/local/bin by default, else you can put it where you want using the "--prefix=/yourpath" flag when you configure it. ./configure --help will show you all the available options.
Do you have any idea how much time you just saved me by explaining that? Given that I only have a couple hours a day max to work linux stuff, it would have taken me weeks to research enough to do this. (Assuming it all works.) Thanks a ton! Your post is a keeper.
