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 people, i have a problem.. im trying to install gain on my computer, but when the installation begins, it asks for my installation disc. the problem is that the default drive is my cdr/rw drive and my install disc is a dvd... i have an external dvd r/rw that can read the install disc but when the installation asks for the disc, it spits out my cdrw drive (mnt/cdrom) and says its "Please insert the medium named "Installation DVD " on device [/dev/hdd] "
my external dvd says it is located at mnt/sr0..
now my question is how do i change the default drive to be the external drive?
Okay what is the device thats mounted to /mnt/sr0 ( check /etc/fstab ) ? are you sure its /dev/cdroms/cdromsr0 ? it might be something else say /dev/hde ? or /dev/scd0 ? Besides that the rm and ln command look correct.
