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 cannot figure out what device I should use to mount a firewire DVD burner. All the IEEE1394 drivers load and the DVD is recognized and attached to the IEEE bus. gscanbus shows it and the controller. Among the things I have tried are:
mount /dev/sbpcd /dev/dvd
mount /dev/srx /dev/dvd (x = 1 .. 3)
mount /dev/sbc /dev/dvd
mount /dev/sbc1 /dev/dvd
I get messages that either the device is not a valid block device or that it does not exist. This is driving me NUTS!! I know it is something stupid. Please, please, go ahead and embrass me by telling me.
You would think so but I don't see anything that looks like a device name for the DVD in either file.
Are there specific device names associated with the IEEE1394 SBP-2 module?
In /proc/ide, I can see /hdc and /hdd, the interrnal ide optical drives. The optical drives are also listed by model in /proc/scsi/scsi but there is no entry for the DVD.
There is no /proc/ieee1394 or /proc/sbp2 but there is a /proc/scsi/sbp2. What it contains appears to relate to the ieee controller and not the device that is attached to it.
/var/log/dmesg does contain several lines from the ieee sbp2 module indicating that it "logged into" the DVD but doesn't show anything like a /dev name.
By loading "modprobe raw1394" I can start gscanbus.
