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.

Thank you for the quick response, I don't see /dev/sr0. What I do see is symbolic links of the cd/DVD drive to /dev/hdc. I tried to chmod -R 700 /dev/hdc but to no avail. Any other routes you think i should try?
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
chmod 600 /dev/hdc then
or in your case probably 700
has to be done as root of course
the -R option is to recursivly change permissions of the contents of a directory
if you change the perms of the file a symlink is pointing at you changing the perms of the symlink i believe isnt necessary
Tried those changes, but again to no avail. I know I could probably set the permissions on /media but then someone could just mount to another mount point. I was looking around and saw that /etc/udev/rules.d/ directory might be a place to look for setting device permissions. Any thought on this?
