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.

Because I am not really good at English. I have opensuse 10.2 and I cannot find the place where, when I put my dvd in, is supposed to be... Like D: under windows you understand? This is stupid I know because my usb external drive is under /media but the DVD drive is not under /dev or /mnt.... here is my fstab
In 10.1, the media:// protocol always seemed to me as a way of making linux mountpoints into Windows drive letters. Perhaps in 10.2 Suse took this a step further, and tried to make the actual underlying mountpoints inaccessible, so that you could always think of them like a drive letter. Maybe check for hidden folder names?
Your guess is as good as mine! But it really is a wrong way of doing this coming from suse... I mean, they probably want to ease the tasks for those "windowers" wanting to give linux a try, but it just plain sucks. If they cant find a drive, then dont use linux at all... Anyways sorry for my rant :|
