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.

From the screenshot you've posted, it appears that you're running the CD in Microsoft Windows. As this is a book based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, I did not test the CD in any Microsoft operating system. Please use Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for this book. (Rebuild distributions such as CentOS 6 and Scientific Linux 6 are acceptable substitutes.)
From the screenshot, it looks like you're in the /tata/Exams subdirectory. Go up a level. You should find other subdirectories there.
edit: I should rephrase slightly -- as I haven't tested the CD in Microsoft Windows, I cannot (and will not) suggest what you might see on the CD using that operating system. I'm sorry to be so rigorous about this, but the use of Microsoft Windows is suggestive of a reader who doesn't intend to use other Linux tools covered in the book.

Reason: added info
Thank you for showing me what you see in Linux. As I understand it, the people who produce books for Tata are different from the people who produced the main book for McGraw-Hill in the US. As I have no contacts at Tata, it may be some time before I get an answer. I do not know if Tata has any sort of technical support. If they do, you may get a faster response that way.
FYI, the attachment shows what I see from the CD, mounted on the /media directory. Click on it for a magnified view. I've included what you should see in the subdirectories for Chapters 1, 2, and 3, as well as several other subdirectories. Let me know if you need a view of the other subdirectories.

Reason: corrected error
I've just been told that you (or anyone else in India who has purchased a copy of the RHCSA/RHCE book 6th edition published by Tata) can contact this person for customer service: firstname.lastname@example.org .

Good day sir, myself and 3 co-workers have formed a study group and we are using your book as our guide. We would like to know, if you know, what would be the right setup for working through the book. I mean in terms of Host Configuration (I'm assuming Virtual Host; it is working out fine this way) and basic VMs that should be setup on that host to successfully have a base system to setup and go from.
Next, new book? RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Practice Exams with Virtual Machines - is there any way to get this ahead of the Oct 2012 publish date showing on Amazon.com. We would really like to each buy this and possibly have you autograph even
Thanks so much for your prompt response, myself and the others were wondering if you would reply and we appreciate you doing so. Hurry up with that book so you can make some more money
Thanks again for your reply and we hope the best of luck. Unfortunately by the time your new book comes out we would have already accomplished obtaining our RHCE certifications, but I for one will definitely give it a go as you can never really have too much practice and I believe a book full of labs would be a great resource and reference.
