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.

this is the third box i'm having problem with, so i guess it maybe the OS problem, or maybe i haven't got the configuration right....
here's the problem:
if there's cd (like movie or mp3) in the cd rom, alot of time if i press the eject button at the cd rom, the cd case won't come out.
all it does is the light flash for a little bit, and nothiong happen, what i have to do is to right click the cd rom icon on my desk top and choose "eject". which i'm fine with it. but the annoying part comes right here ------
if you right click cd rom icon, and choose eject to take out your cd case, your cd case will edject and insert back into the cd rom right away!?!?!?!?! (so basically i on ly got about 1 sec to grab my cd before the darn on thing goes back into the cd rom)
anyone have experience with this? i thought it was my box problem to begin with, but this is the third box i have linux installed, and same thing kept happening, i was wondering if there's a conf file or something i can edit so i don't have to "race" with my cd case to grab my cd out of it?
this is my first post, indeed I've only had a linux system really for a day (though some experiences with unix at school)
it already seems to me that the gui isn't really the way to navigate. >>> ( why walk when you can fly?)
my question is how do you edject the cd from the terminal?
That's what I was thinking. I though it was eject /dev/cdrom or whatever the device is for your cdrom. It is eject /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 for me, crazy udev. It's sticking out as I type. Wonder how you get it back in? I'll just push it.
