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 am new to Ubuntu and am having trouble getting the software to read cds that I have pictures on. I made the CDs through Windows Vista and it says" Cannot mount volume. Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'UDF Volume'." I found an old thread on the subject, but it did not seem to help. I took a screen shot of what I did.
root@greg-laptop:/home/greg# mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 Pictures
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
root@greg-laptop:/home/greg# dmesg | tail

The files are pictures that were on Windows before and they work on windows when I put the CD in (dual boot for now), but I can't seem to figure out how to fix it.
