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've just installed Kde 3.2.2 on my SuSe 9.0 system using the rpm of the site, and following the instructions of the README, but i have a few problems:
1. the start menu: everything is okay, but the arrows doesn't appear , so i don't know which menu has submenus! :-) this on the first level, from the second menu everything is okay
2. i cannot hear any music cd! everytime i want to mount a music cd (by going in konqueror to devices -- , i get the error:
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified
Please check that the disk is entered correctly.
when i try to do it from the console, writing
# mount /dev/cdrom i get the same error
but when i try to hear a cd with the VLC player, it's okay...
so what can i do? why KDE doesn't recognize my cds?
help, please :-)
The 'fstab' thingy was a request for Jesus_edu :P so we can help him.
But in your case and by looking at your setup, your CD-ROM's/DVD's seem to be mounted in rather unusual places, this should not be an issue since is my undertanding that app's would consult 'fstab' to find the CD mount point. Unless you need to manually tell to this app where is the mounting point.
My suggestion is to make a post in the 'Software' forum indicating exactly what application is the one having trouble. I am not familiar with 'audiocd' application nor i could find it in my packages list to install it.
one thing i have found with kio audiocd slave is that i appear to need an internet connection (for CDDB lookups) for audio cd browsing in konqueror - that is to say, without internet connectivity, because CDDB lookups are not possible, no audio cd browsing is available...
have you checked the CDDA settings in KDE Control Center?
Given that SuSE has a habit of mounting CD drives in a non-standard location, it might be worth explicitly pointing to /media/cd or whatever your device is. but i have to admit I'm guessing somewhat...
