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.

When I go to use my dvddrive, which should be under /dev/cdrom,
it tries to activate my cdrw. For instance, when I send /dev/cdrom
the eject operation, it ejects my cdrw.
When I send /dev/scd0 the eject command, it sends me an error
Eject /dev/scd0 failed!
When I attempt to mount my cdrw, it says:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Please check that the disk is entered correctly.
And my cdrom is showing up as already being mounted.
I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Could someone out there
walk me through the process of setting up two cdroms - one secondary
master cdrom (dvdreader) and one secondary slave cdrw?
I followed a bunch of HowTo's from the net, but none of them
work, and I really just want to start from square one and go through
the entire process. I'm sure many people could benefit from the information.
