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.

trying to work around this I have generated an image using mkisofs and then tried using dvdrecord to burn the dvd again with errors this time around the SCSI driver. The output from cdrecord -scanbus would appear to indicate a device of ATA:0,1,0 but this gives the same errors so I guess I need other parameters.
As far as I can tell the ide-scsi module is no longer part of the distro ?.

Im running FC2 and have been finding out some interesting things.
For one the cdrecord software gets changed by RedHat (or bastardised as it states on the cdrecord website, maybe thats why it doesnt work). There also seems to have been a bit of a flame between the cdrecord peeps and Linus Torvalds and now the ide-scsi module for accessing DVD drives is no more! or at least not on my distro. Unfortunately dvdrecord (the son of cdrecord) wants scsi parameters to burn to dvd.
I've now got the image I need and maybe dd would work directly, with the correct parameters. If anyone cares to comment on this I would be gratefull.
