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 have a similar problem with a "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom or too many mounted file systems", but i think i know why it's started happening to me at least - i had a cd mounted, tried to eject without unmounting, so in konqueror i put the folder called "cdrom" into the trash. Now i can't mount a cd without getting the same error message. It won't let me restore the directory to /dev as it says there is already a file (not a dir) in /dev called "cdrom". How do i fix things so i can mount cds again?
Thanks, so is there an mp3 player that comes with rh8.0? Or can i get the plugin for xmms somewhere and how is it installed. I had a copy of mandrake a few years back which had a version of winamp included which could play mp3s ok. Why have they removed the ability to play them? Is it some issue over rights or something? Thanks in advance,
You could probably do a search on G4L aka www.google.com/linux for the XMMS plugins to allow for mp3 playing. I guess RH didn't want to ship it ready made for mp3's due to the controversy over them. I don't know for sure. There's got to be an rpm out there somewhere. I saw someone once mention rpmfind website. I don't know the exact URL, but a search on G4L will probably yield good results. Hope this helps.
