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.

Hi all, I'm running Mandrake 10.1 on KDE, using the Kaffeine player - whilst this plays back music I can't actually see the audio files on the cd rom when I click on that icon - can anybody tell me how I can configure these to be visible please?
Originally posted by LJSBrokken You can't see those files because tracks on such a CD are not Linux file system data; they are accessed and sent to the audio output channel directly, using a CD player program.
Thanks for the confirmation, thought that was probably issue - can you advise on the best software to use so I can rip music please?
cdparanoia retrieves audio tracks from CDDA capable CDROM drives. The data can be saved to a file or directed to standard output in WAV, AIFF, AIFF-C or raw format. Most ATAPI, SCSI and several proprietary CDROM drive makes are supported; cdparanoia can determine if the target drive is CDDA capable.
In addition to simple reading, cdparanoia adds extra-robust data verification, synchronization, error handling and scratch reconstruction capability.
