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've my new pc with my new fedora core 4 installation wich can't find my dvd drives. The Hard Drive is a sata drive and 2 dvd devices are in primary ide. The bios shows:
IDE Channel 0 Master: HL-DT-STDVD-ROM GDR8
IDE Channel 0 Slave: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA...
IDE Channel 1 Master: ST3160812AS (sata disk)
I installed fedora from the dvd drive, so its bootable, my windows can read & write from/to them.
From fedora, the most surprising thing is that I haven't got any hd* device in /dev directory. Some output:

Thanks for your replies, I think that recompile kernel is better to solve this problem...nevermind, I will be on it as soon as I can.
