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.

Is there any software available for Linux that will burn MP3's? I have X-CD-Roast but it only seems to recognize .wav files. I found a Music Match Jukebox download for Linux but when I went to run it I received a bad interpreter error. I hope someone can help. I had to go into Windows ME to burn some MP3's and it locked up on me four times and crashed once during the time it took to burn 2 CDs!!! It was an excellent reminder of why I switched to Linux.
I tried gcombust but I keep getting error messages. It says the usr/bin/cdrecord doesn't exist but it IS there. Then I get "cannot open SCSI driver." I have no idea how to resolve this.
I also tried Gnome Toaster 1.0Beta2 and I couldn't get it to record the MP3's I had loaded. I kept getting "preview player active - recording process cancelled" or I would get a message that there was nothing to record. I spent most of the morning messing with both programs and couldn't get either one to work.
I have used X-CD-Roast to extract and then burn music and I listen to CD's all the time so I know it's reading the drive and the sound card is working. Any ideas?
you just gotta explore your programs a tiny bit. in gcombust, check preferences in file menu, and set the proper path to cdrecord. as for gtoaster, i dunno, but it's presumably something as trivial, explore!
Ok, are you trying to burn a CD which contains the MP3 files (for backup, lets say...yes, backup...) or are you trying to burn them as Audio cds, i.e. so that you can play them in a standard cd system?
If it's the latter, you may find it easier to convert them to wav files first, as that's what the majority of software does anyway.
BTW, you mentioned that you're having problems finding the SCSI device - if it's an IDE/Atapi burner, you must add the hdx=ide-scsi to the append line of your lilo.conf (and then, obviously, run lilo).
Well I ran everything according to the info on the page. I had to first change the blank spaces in the song titles to underscores and that worked but when I went to convert to .wavs it seemed to work but the file extension still show as .mp3. I'm very persistent (obsessive maybe?) but very frustrated at this point.
Never mind! I found out how to do it by using mpg123 and it was very simple!
