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 suse linux 8 and have spent the last 5 hours trying to mount the cdrom drive. I have read other posts and have tryed many of their script solutions, but they don't seem to work. I know my drive is labled as hdb, but i m a little confused about what to write in the fstab file. COuld someone maybe post what they have in their folder so they can have tehir cd-rom drive mounted, and tell me what to do so that it atomaticly mounts for every user. I am very interested in switching to linux, but this little thing is making me a little uneay about it.
P.S i have tried to edit that fstab file before, but i guess i screwed up and i for some reason made kde not run, so i had to reinstall it. Because of this i am weary of trying knew things with the fstab file, but if anyone can give good details, i would be willing to try them out.
you shouldn't have to alter the fstab, or anything else for the matter, have you tried clicking on the cdrom icon that's on the desktop? it should mount the drive and display the contents automagically.
