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.

Here's my setup, SuSe 7.0 personal, ecs board, 1200 amd, 65M ram, couple of old WD HD totaling like 6G and finally the Biggest Problem thus far the ata CDROM. My Tech built it for me and he used one of his CDROM's laying around to install it and I told him to take it out because I have one laying around. When I installed it well... guess what... it doest work... i have read most forums on google and searched for info about it and most of the commands I found on google DO NOT work (eg. mount/cdrom), it just says bad command on all that I try... by the way my personal user login once worked and now it just kicks me back to the login screen... so I have to login as ROOT. Please help.
umount /cdrom didnt work
well it said bad command when i typed that but i was able to take the cd outta the drive... now when i enter a music cd it still shows the contents of the other cd and not the new one... is that common for non successfully unmounting the cd?
