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.

TTNot sure if two months using Linux still qualifies me a s a newbie, but I think I must be doing something very simple or obvious wrong.
I'm using centOS4.4, and need to restrict myself to using dd i.e. mkisofs (etc) is not an option at the moment.
I've followed several examples indicating the following will make an exact copy a dvd ()not this is a data dvd, no encryption etc):
dd if=/dev/hdb of=/tmpt/mycopy.iso
dd if=/dev/hdb of=/tmpt/mycopy.iso bs=2048
In both case the dd completes without reporting any error.
However when I open the iso file, by double clicking on the iso file using Gnomes file browser, I see several things that are incorrect:
1) The file name T200609T.IDX doesn't exist, i.e. there is an file icon there but no name, and the size doesn't match the original.
2) The file T200609T.BIN dosen't exist (or these file maybe interchanged)
2) Other file names have ';1' appended to them....?
I can browse the dvd without any problem in Linux.
I'm at a total loss - I haven't seen anyone else report a similar problem.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
