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.

Winex is having issues with kernel 2.6 ... keep that one in mind
I have the latest packaged version and had the same problem, this is the support post i got :
There may currently be some issues with 2.6 kernels and copy protection. It seems there is a kernel config setting that can copy protection not to work. We are investigating this.
For Diablo 2, however, I know that the game cd must be inserted into the same cdrom as it was installed from to pass copy protection. You should also check your cdrom DEVICE permissions and remember to follow any links the devices may have.
