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.

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.

Is a audio cd iso9660 cause i am using the command mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom and it gives me wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom or to many mounted filesystems. i did a mount -l and all i have is hda1 pts proc and usb mounted. in other words its not already mounted.
allright, let me rephrase here so i can get help. i know mp3's are not on a cd duh let me say that again duh. I want to get the music which normally shows up as a .wav file when i copy music off a cd onto my computer in windows (whether windows does some sort of conversion automatically i dont know) so i want to get the music on a cd converted to mp3 format so that i can put it on my server and/or listen to it from mp3 format. I installed a program LAME which i think will do the conversion for me, however in the man page it says use the command:
lame [options] <infile> <outfile>
now i am assuming i need this <infile> to be a file residing somewhere on my computer or where i can get to it from my computer (i.e. maybe a network). So i guess my real question is....... how do i get music from a audio cd to my linux computer as a .wav or any other format for that matter that is supported by lame, file?
Thanks, i already found CDparanoia and LAME. Between the two they work great.
p.s. Mara - if your gonna close my post for being similar to my other one in a different forum please at least answer the question then please instead of closing me clueless. Also, if you noticed i answered myself in that forum.
p.s.s. special thanks to contrasutra for answering the post!
