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 am running Mandriva 2006 (free) with wine and I can't seem to get Diablo II LOD to find the CD. I would like to play without the CD (or download the CD to the drive and use it from there) I have tried to copy the CD to the drive and point system.reg and user.reg to the location of the files. (as they are in wine, c:\diablo2CD) also I have tried to make sure the D:\ is the CD-ROM drive and set DiabloIICD="d:\" in system.reg and user.reg and run it from the CD. That still doesn't work.

Yes lpd you are correct. I had to do the same thing for both Cedega and wine. Since your using wine you have to go into your .wine direction. It should be /home/yourloginname/.wine/, in there is a file called config, go into and look for "winver" set it to win2k. When I get home I'll send you a copy of my config file and maybe more detail on the steps needed to be taken in order to get your D2LOD running fine. Until then Good Luck!
ok guys im super new to linux .. i have done the wincfg thing and made it win2000 - i dont have a config file in ~/.wine/dosdevices as the previous guys said and im not real sure what a symlink is... im having the problem of it now reading from disk.. :S .. can anyone help me out please
~/.wine/dos-devices is where your drives are. Actually it is just symlinks that point to devices in /dev or to mount points. You can create the symlink using the config program winecfg. I can't tell you exactly how to do that right now, I'm not at home, but you would click on a tab probably labled Drives, then select Add and tell winecfg it is a cdrom. Make sure you save before exiting.
<edit>Make sure the cdrom is mounted before you start DiabloII.
Run winecfg, Click on Drives tab, Click on Show Advanced button. Click Add button, select CD-ROM from the Type Pull-Down menu. Click on Browse next to path and browse to the cdrom mount point or type in the mount point for your cdrom. Click Apply
<edit>To find the mount point for your cdrom look in the /etc/fstab file.
