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 have slackware 7.1 with the 2.2.16 distribution and i have an ide cd rewritable drive, I don't know how to burn a cd please help..
i have already insmod the ide-scsi thing and edited my lilo.conf to have the append hdc thing, i used mkisofs to successfully make the cd_image of my directory, and then when i try to cdrecord -scanbus, it does nothing at all, so i have to cancel the process... please help thanks...
Your cdrom drive should not show up as hdc. It is still loading as a IDE device and not SCSI. Make sure the ide-cd module is not loaded. The tape drive should not cause a problem. I have SCSI tape drive and the IDE CD shows up as a seperate controller.
okay I did lsmod and the ide-scsi is there, and the ide-cd is not there, but the output that you show that you get when you type cdrecord -scanbus, I can't get this, when i type that it just says cdrecord version 1.8.1 and then just stays like that frozen, so i have to end that process
also when i do dmesg, it says at first
hdc:PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012A, ATAPI CDROM drive
ide0: 0x1f0-0x1f7, 0x3f6 on irq 14
ide1: 0x170-0x177, 0x136 on irq 15
then a little further down
hdc: ATAPI 40X CD-ROM CD-R/RWW, 4996kB Cache
Uniform Cd-Rom driver Revision 3.10
LinuxQuestions is a voluntary site, and all questions are answered in peoples own time. Bumping a thread after a couple of days is fine, as long as you can give an update on what you have tried since the last post and such like. But simply bumping it with a fullstop just one hour after the previous post will not make you any friends here.
