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 brand new to linux, and haven't gotten to grips with troubleshooting.
So if there's an easy way to find out what's going wrong, please just tell me and not flame me :-)
At the moment im using debian Sid. I did an apt-get of k3b, which installed version 0.11.20.
I'm trying to burn an ISO of a DVD I want to backup. I try by putting a dvd-r in the drive, opening up k3b: tools -> DVD -> Burn dvd image.
All goes fine up until the actual burn process starts. It prints the error: "Unable to GET EVENT: input/output error." - For the first time I let it burn anyway - it burnt at under 1x: but i didn't want to stop it incase it wasted the dvd. The dvd has the files on it, but wont play in any player.
I'm pretty sure all the dependancies are met.
If i've left out any info you need to help me out, please ask!
Thanks in advance,
CaPu // James
PS - I've done a load of web searches, followed advice from there, but still to no avail.
Did you mount the image and use either mplayer, xine, vlc, or other DVD player program. You will have to specify the video_ts directory for the DVD device path.
I usually get "Unable to GET EVENT: input/output error" with kernel version <=2.6.10, so I have to make a CD or DVD with root even though permissions are set. If you are using 2.4.x or >=2.6.11, then the problem will go away.
