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.

Any idea where I can find a good tutorial on this thing?
ie: Installing/Using programs.
Sorry to sound so disgustingly virginal but I guess I'm a little too used to Windows.
I suppose you get that alot. Thanks again.
Can you post here what your /etc/fstab looks like? I am not sure if Mandrake used supermount/automount back then or not.
Anyway, you will need to mount the device associated with the CDROM and FLOPPY mount points. It's much simpler than it sounds, but you need to mount your floppy/cdrom devices in order to view them. Depending on what your /etc/fstab files look like, you might just need to:
Type those into a terminal and then try to access the devices.
You also might wanna do a search on this site about accessing those devices, there's plenty of information on it.
