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.

All you need to do is either right click on the main XMMS window and select "Play Location" or on the keyboard do a [Control-L]. when the "Enter location to play" dialog comes up, put in "/mnt/cdrom" or where ever your cdrom has been mounted and then click "OK" or press enter.
There is sometimes a delay if you are using the CDDB lookup function (gets the CD details from the net) and/or using "Supermount" (automatic mounting of removable media like CDROMs).
If you're not sure where you CDROM has been mounted you can either type the command "mount" in the shell/terminal or check the file "/etc/fstab" using the command "cat /etc/fstab" also from the shell/terminal. You may need "root" privileges to do this. Look for "/mnt/cdrom" or "/cdrom" or "/dec/cdrom" or similar.
Hope this helps.
NOTE: I'm using Mandrake 9.1 (Redhat based) but this also worked with Mandrake 9.0/8.2/8/7.2, Debian 2.2/3.0 and Knoppix show it should work.
