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 having this issue for the first time (I've been using SuSE linux in one version or another since 2004).
k3b burns DVDs (DVD-Rs) without any problems, but refuses to burn a CD-R (and asks me to insert a CD-RW!!). The systems recognizes the empty CD-R and even asks me if it should launch k3b to record something in it.
PLEASE do not recommend me to use cdrao or something else using the command line, I need to be able to record data CDs from KDE.
I'm running SuSE 10.0, KDE 3.5.1, k3b 0.12. My DVD recorder is a Sony DRU-800. Here's a dump from k3b after one such failure:
K3b Version: 0.12
KDE Version: 3.5.1 Level "a"
QT Version: 3.3.5
