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.

well yes, running everything as root is technically bad if it's avoidable. having said that it's realistically pretty harmless. any default user should alawys have read access to /dev/hdc or wherever your cdrom is though.
When i try to run grip as normal user i got this message:
Errror: Unable to initialize [dev/cdrom]
Trying to run RipperX i got this message:
make sure an audio disc is in the drive and that you are either running ripperX as root, are a member of the "cdrom" group, or otherwise have appropriate permission to acess the CDROM device
Error: cdparanoia camplains:
Error trying to open dev/hdc exclusively(permission denied)
Same problem I am having.
Using Fedora Core 3, kernel 2.6.9-something.
I tried using cdparanoia independantly and no problem there.
I found a suggestion to use scsi-emulation so I loaded the sg-module, but no luck.
cdparanoia reports something on scsi-emulation, I will look further into that direction, but am still puzzled.
Actually I quit my search, I found I already have a working kaudiocreator, this works just fine.
I stick with that.
