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 just installed Mandrake 9.0 and i want to mount my CD Device. In the "Device" portion, I wrote /dev/scd0. I know this is correct because when I right-click the ico, and press "Eject", it works fine. However, when I click to browse the files, it's not showing any, but the cd is clearly inside. I don't see my CD light flashing or anything. What is wrong? Is it me?
It's a data CD, in fact, it's a Linux native. Allow me to start from the beginning.
I'm in KDE (This is Mandrake 9.0). I right-click in an empty desktop area and press new CD-ROM device. I enter the name (shouldn't make a difference), and in "Device" I enter /dev/scd0. It creates me an icon on my desktop, which I can (theoretically) just click. I click it and Konqeror comes up. It tries to direct me to some website (for whatever reason). When I right click the icon and press eject however, it ejects fine. I try right-click>mount and nothing happens.
eltongeoff, good catch. most people don't realize it that fast.
evil-monkey, what it sounds like is that you don't have permissioins to mount them. whether you have them automounted or not. check your fstab and see if it has nouser in it, if so then you'll have to get rid of it all together or just put in user. it could also be that you don't have supermount enabled, can't remember if mdk 9.0 had it or not.
hopefully you won't have any more problems with 9.1. if so please post back.
