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.

Well, aside from the fact that either my Mixer isn't working, my soundcard isn't set up right, or both, something happened to my CD-ROM drive. When I went to /dev there was no cdrom file or image there, which was the cause of me not being able to mount my cd-rom drive.
Well, I ran ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom to create the link between my cdrom drive and my hdc, then I tried to mount my CD-ROM and got this new fancy prompt:
Drivemount command failed.
"Mount /mnt/cdrom 2>&1" reported:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom, or too many mounted file systems"
Well, all I have mounted are hda2 and hdb1, so I doubt it's too many file systems mounted. And it's a music CD which reads in cd-players, so I doubt it's a bad superblock. And I've ran the same option before by clicking on the mount icon I created, which worked before I made this great mess-up, so I doubt it's the option. That leaves a wrong fs type. Any suggestions?
Ahh! GAHH!!! Thanks for telling me that you can't mount audio CD's. I found it odd that normal users usually can listen to CD's, but that they can't mount CD's...
I don't know what I did, but I did "ln -s hdd cdrom", and I guess that did the trick...
P.S. Anyone know why my computer wouldn't see my ethernet card when I added a line to my modules.config? I took the line out(which was the only line) and it worked again. Odd....
Now to tackle my soundcard! Hooah!
