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.

For example,when I insert a CD which has label as EnterpriseLinux,it mounts like /media/EnterpriseLinux automatically.Meanwhile it creates a shortcut in the name of "EnterpriseLinux" in my desktop.I assume that this shortcut is also in the form of file as everything is file in linux.Is it right? If Yes,Can we list the shortcut name "Enterpriselinux" by using command ls?
Yes everything is a file under linux (but not all files are the same......).
I do believe the shortcut you are talking about should be visible in ~/Documents (I'm not using Oracle Enterprise Linux, so the naming could be different.), and all in ~/Documents can be listed with ls.
It gives list all other files except shortcut name.
Any subdirectories that might hold the link?
Too my knowledge if the link is shown on your desktop, it should reside in the ~/Desktop directory. It could be that there is a global Desktop directory, but I would not know where this one can be found.
Maybe a find on your whole system can find it. Something like (as root user): find / -iname "link-name" > 2>/dev/null. This is a resource intense command and might run for a little while.
BTW: I can view the content of CD.I just want to list out this shortcut for curiosity.
