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.

Hi,I have SuSE 10 and can not get K3b to burn a cd. I have 2 drives a DVD rom and a CD burner. on starting I get a message saying: Disable automounting and replace /etc/fstab entries with old fashioned ones. I tried a live cd of Linspire and it burned no bother so the hardware is ok. can someone tell me how to go about replacing the /etc/fstab entries and how exactly to add burn privileges. I logged in as root and still could not burn. I have uninstalled the version that came on the Installation cd as set-up was missing and downloaded the latest version. after attempting to burn a cd you can not close the program down it locks up and stays until I restart the PC, It says "writing" or "preparing to write" but does neither. thanks Adrian
Hi, I checked the system services runlevel and its set to "no" I unchecked the boxes 3,5 in expert mode (not sure if that was right?) tried to burn again but just the same, below is the debug output. how do I check if the temp folder is big enough? the file I tried to burn was only 380k.

thanks Jon, having tried and failed to get the burner working for weeks I have just replaced suse with pclinuxOS as I need the cd burner, hope it works there. It actually worked ok with a Linspire live cd. will let you know what happens. Adrian
