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'm running Suse 7.1 on a 900 Mhz Celeron, with a CD-ROM as master on it's own channel, and a CD-RW as slave on the same channel as the hard drive. When attempting to mount either device, I receive the error message "No Medium Found".
What does this mean, and how do I fix it?
Yeah, it seems a little odd, I assume you did put disc in the drive - are there any scratches on the disc - that sort of error indicates that a disc is not readable or it is not in the drive, another option ... well, the drive retired.
Installing a disc DID make a difference.....now I receive an error message 'input/output error: could not determine filesystem type, and none was specified'.
What does this mean?
The disc plays fine in the SAME drive when I boot that OTHER operating system, so I'm assuming that the problem involves some setting in the Linux OS.
