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.

That is what I get when I use a file browser to try to access my CDrom. I was trying to play music through it, and thought it was a soundcard problem, but I tested my soundcard (an app that came with fedora core 2) and It worked fine.
On a side note, this is the same error message I get when I try to mount my second hard drive.
Fedora does not provide NTFS support by default. You are correct you will need to download the RPMs for FC2. BTW this is read only.
Create a directory to use as a mount point and then add an entry to your /etc/fstab file.
You can not mount music CDs because they do not contain a valid filesystem. KsCD requires an audio cable between the sound card and the drive. xmms uses digital audio extraction and does not need an audio cable.
Does that mean I can play the audio CD with xmms? I'll try that out in a sec.
Sorry for my ignorance, but what entry am I supposed to add into my fstab once I install the NTFS RPM?
EDIT: I was able to get XMMS to play the audio CD but the sound quality seems to be lacking. It almost seems like it's clipping ... I'll look into getting some EQ presets like I had with winamp. (sorry ... i'm a long time windows user, but i'm making the switch!)
