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.

Okay, I had to do a re-installation of Slackware a week or so ago, and I've been anxious to get back to Warcraft III (and PSX games, but that's another story for another thread). Unfortunately, when I try to run the game, (in WineX) it complains that there is no CD in the tray. However if I try to run it as root, the game launches fine, but I'd rather not run it as root (I mean I shouldn't have to). Here's the part about my DVD-Rom drive in /etc/fstab
I dunno. I've just been having odd problems since I re-installed Slack. Like I missed some crucial package that somehow controls my joystick not being loaded by modprobe joydev and somehow makes normal users unable to play WC3. I'd prefer to not have a workaround, I want to find out what the problem is, but I haven't been able to find it yet
Originally posted by mondaypickle maybe permissions on your cdrom, try chmod 755 /dev/cdrom. try chmod a+rx /mnt/cdrom while its not mounted
That did it! I thought I already did that, but I guess I must have missed it ^_^. Also fixed another problem I had.
If anyone had similar problems this is what I did:
$ chmod a+rx /mnt/cdrom;chmod a+rx /mnt/cdrom1 (for both my drives)
$ chmod 755 /dev/hdc;chmod 755 /dev/hdd (since /dev/cdrom is just a symlink, I used the file it links to)
After that, everything worked! Once again, thanks for your help.
