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.

all of a sudden my cd-r says "no media found" when i try to load cd?? it worked a little while ago, just wanna play music, i tried a couple different cd's to. i havent messed with /dev or /mnt since i finally got both my cd-r (/dev/hdd) and my dvd (/dev/hdd) working.
If it's a CDR, it's probably using scsi emulation, and isn't hdd anymore. You'll either need to recreate your symlinks:
ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdburner (assuming /dev/scd0 is the new name of your burner)
I don't know if that's a typo, or if this is a combo drive (/dev/hdd) but either way, it would still be the same thing if you are using scsi-emulation.
does the bare.i kernel use scsi emulation??? anyways everything basically works..kinda, my dvd will only mount dvd's wich is fine and my cd-r will only mount cd's with text or files, not audio..but XMMS will mount the audio and play it wich is all i wanted anyways so its not broke im not gonna fix it!!
ya... there is a probably a really good reason for this but i don't know what it is. i use a command line program called cdplay to play cd's but there are a lot of others out there. probably a lot with gui's. but if you need to test it out, put in an wudio cd and type cdplay. you should hear the cd in a few seconds. to stop it type cdplay stop. type man cdplay for main details. i think it should be included in most distros. hope that helps.
ya o can play audio with xmms wich is fine but i thought i mounted a audio cd, i thats what i did, when you ask xmms to play a file from a directory then all the tracks show up, but anyways everything works i was just wondering, im really enthralled by this new world of slack, it makes windows look like
it was bad dream!!!
