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've been wanting to back up some data with my new dvd burner. Unfortunately, it doesn't want to work in linux. This exact same problem occurs in both Suse 9.1 and Ubuntu 5.10. Here is the Gnomebaker log:
Executing 'mkisofs -V Backup 051127 -p -iso-level 3 -l -R -hide-rr-moved -J -joliet-long -gui -graft-points Pan=/data2/backup save/Pan MtoZ=/data2/backup save/MtoZ | builtin_dd of=/dev/hdc obs=32k seek=0'

Any ideas? The dvd burner is supposed to burn at 16x and the discs I'm using are supposed to be good for it, so it shouldn't be that. Especially because in Suse it won't even go past 4x speed in actual use, regardless of my settings. I'm using Ubuntu now, but I don't think this problem is distro-specific.
