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 am new to linux and this forum so go easy on me....
I am trying to mount my cdrw for read only access and the message is:
mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device
it's not important because I have a dvd I can mount but it's the principle of the thing. I also was wondering if there is drag and drop support for kfm or any other file manager, kinda like Direct CD. I am proudly a FORMER windows user so I have a whole other perspective to learn. Thanks to anyone who at least reads this.
I am having the same problem with mij Philips CDRW. Whenever I (try to)
mount a cd the whole system freezes and I have to reboot. I run RH 8.0. David, should I make a seperate question for my problem and put my dmesg output in there or can I contact you directly? Either way is fine with me.
