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'm currently using RH7.3 and the documentations said to access X CD Roast go to Main Menu -Programs - Multimedia - X CD Roast, but I don't see it under Multimedia. How do I find/install it? Also, do I have to mount CD before I can use Roast? I'm in KDE right now. EXTREME newbie (only 3 days) and can use all the help I can get. Thanks.
please do yourself a facvuor, and don't use that nasty nasty program, try eroaster, or if you really want a KDE app, try arson, that's had a few good things said about it. it's always easiest just to run the application from a console, but i'm quite sure that there's a stupidly easy way to put it in the kde menus. you won't need to know where it is, just as long as it is on your path, you'll be fine.
Check your email? I thought they were looking for help on a burning program
I agree very much with acid, XCDRoast is only good for setting permissions, then from there burning should be done with a decent program like Eroaster, GCombust (?), Arson, or CDCopy (which is available over at www.jetblackz.freeservers.com )
But if you'd like to use XCDRoast, or at least see why it's not that great ( or maybe you will love it ) yes, it should be in your path, and you could just open up a terminal (the little DOS looking screen) and type in xcdroast to run it.
I upgraded to the newest version of xcdroast just last night (the website says it's newer than the one that ships with RH8) and it works beautifully. It's all in RPMs so it's easy to install.
I've found it's performance a lot better than Nero, which I was using under windows to do my burning. In windows my good cd to coaster ratio was about 2:1 which is not acceptable. I haven't had one go bad with xcdroast yet after 5. Interface is a bit confusing though. . .
You don't have to mount your cdr, and you don't have to open a terminal, just use your "start" menu and choose "run command", a little box will pop up, type "xcdroast" into it, and the app will start up.
