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'm running redhat 9. neither of the above drives acts as if it recognizes a cd in the the particular drives. both devices are set at "noauto" on mounting. if that is all i need to change i could use the help in how to, otherwise i think it's a driver issue with both.
also of note(maybe not), the default gnome-cd player seg faults when launching the program.
thanks in advance for any suggestion/help, and if i need to include some more information will happily do!

you don't have to mount an audio CD to read it. just insert and run a player -- have you tried another CD player app, like kscd or xmms (plugin?), or tried upgrading/reinstalling the gnome player? how are you trying to read the DVD movie - you should be able to view it using mplayer or xine, provided you have installed all the components.
i will try reinstalling the gnome cd player, although i'm not exaclty sure how to do this with redhat 9. i do have the install cds, so i'm sure i have the necesarry software. i also recently installed realplayer, but it acts as if there is no cd in the drive when i put in an audio cd.
same with a diff cd player app that was provided by redhat 9 installation, but different one from the gnome cd player that seg faults when opening...
