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 Slackware 9.0 with kernel version 2.4.22.
I recently burned some CDs in UDF format to avoid the 64 character filename truncation associated with ISO9960. After recompiling the kernel for UDF support, I now find that whenever I mount a UDF cdrom, the owner and group of the mounted filesystem is 4294967295 4294967295, and not root. This is troublesome as I am not able to access these files with any non-root user, although with root access I can copy the files at will. CHOWN fails to change the owner and CHGRP fails to change the group of both the mounted filesystem as well as any file I copy off the cd. ISO9960 CDs still work without trouble.
