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.

I am very new to linux, and I can no longer play any type of compact disc. I was messing around as root the other evening (BAD IDEA for newbies!!) to try to make Xcd Roast working, and somehow (and I honestly don't know how) I did quite the opposite. I made my cd players unrecognizable or something.
As I said, I'm very new to Linux, so if ANYONE can be patient with me and take me through a step-by-step process on how to possibly fix this major problem, I'd be SOOOOO appreciative!
for the DVD YaST gives the device name /dev/hdc and for the cd-rw it gives /dev/sr0.
How come the dvd uses hdX and cdrw uses srX?? I guess I will try changing my fstab (but i will not go overboard this time! i learned my lesson!!)
Just trying to learn at least one new thing everyday
When I check out my files through the terminal window, sometimes some of them are red, sometimes, green, sometimes yellow, and sometimes there's a star next to the file. What do the different colored text mean and what's the star all about??
PS: Still MAJORLY confused about the cd rom issues. The more help with that, the happier I will beeee!!
