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.

Well i am trying to mount my dvdrw drive but when i do mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom i get a message saying that i must specify the filesystem this is when i try to mount a cd. when i put in a dvd it mounts fine, but when i select the media icon in systems i get a blank folder. im using slackware 11 by the way
well i did mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom. i then got a message saying, wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom. missing code page or other error....etc. what does all this mean?
Well this is strange when i did mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom i got the error message in terminal, but when i when to storage device the cd was mounted and i can see the tunes and play them with noatun.
I have a question. i was able to do mount -t /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom to get my cd-r and dvd-rw to mount in slackware. after i umount and put the cd or the dvd back in the drive it mounted automatically is this suppose to happen. i didnt make any changes to my mtab. i was told that i would have to do maual mount in slackware.
