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 managed to listen an original music CD on my Suse 9.0 Pro box. Do you use the original or a copy? mzaybe the problem comes from the media itself or the file format used... In KSDC try "Configure CD Player" and select "Autoplay" (when CD is inserted).
Also try to verify if your sound card is present using YAST\Hardware\Sound : your sound card should be listed and running.
CD-ROM drives usually have a separate audio out wire that runs straight to the audio card, separate from the wide IDE cable and the power cable. It uses this cable to stream audio from audio CDs, whereas when you play an mp3 from the drive, it sends data to the CPU, which decodes it and sends it on to your sound card. Do you have one of those cables?
If your drive can play mp3s but not audio CDs, this is likely the problem.
