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.

wuz up everybody, I'm a total newbie to linux, and I just installed RF 9.0 and I got one slight problem with my cdrom..when I'm trying to do something with cdrom it says mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom
or too many mounted file systems
And when I'm trying to use the cdrom as a normal user not a root my cdrom it's openin' and does't want to close hm any one know wuz up with that?
I was trying to access both, data n audio, when look at the cdrom it says no autorun...beafore I was using RH 8 and everything was fine with RH 9 floppy and everything else is working fine except the cdrom...thank u 4 the reply
Ps. when I'm trying to mount the cdrom I'm just getting a big yellow lock on the icon of cdrom...beside's I dont even see my cdrom icon on my desktop
From the command that u gave me (dmesg | grep -i rom) I got
hdc: SAMSUNG CD-R/RW DRIVE SW-208F, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12
And from the second one (ls -sla /dev/cdrom) I got
0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Nov 3 19:18 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0
and the last one I dont even have a dri called fstab
Originally posted by acidjesus and the last one I dont even have a dri called fstab
so what should I do?
and thnak u for the help.
yeah there should be a small text file called fstab located in /etc. this tells Red Hat what to mount at startup (you NEED to have this and if you are able to start your computer you do have it, without it i don't think your / will mount, which means yeah you don't have... stuff) anyways if you look in that file there should be a part as described above, if there isn't add it.
