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.

As I am pretty new to Linux, I am just getting used to Fedora Core 3, and when I inserted one of my music CDs today I wanted to view the files on it, and copy them onto my desktop, much like you can explore a CD in Windows and copy and paste the files. But when I right-clicked the "Audio CD" and selected "Open", it opens the CD in "CD Player" - which I don't want it to, I just want to see the files - and tells me that it is corrupt!
Please can you tell me of a way to view the files on the CD in File Browser, so that I can then copy them into a folder on my HDD?
Audio CD's don't contain files in the PC sense of the word. In windows it just shows them that way for convenience. If you want to copy songs from a CD you'll have to rip them to either WAV, OGG or MP3 first. The latter two are best as they're compressed formats. You can't mount an audio CD.
