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.

on my desktop sits three icons, one for each cdrom device and one for my floppy. normally i rename these, because they have long names like "CDROM mounted at /mnt/cdrom." but it won't let me rename them.
than they disappeared for a bit, so i just added links to the corresponding locations, and these links i can just rename to simple names like "DVD-ROM" and such.
so i guess i'm asking either for the process of removing them from my esktop, but not unmounting them...OR just being able to rename them.
Not too sure, it's sounding pretty "desktop environment specific" though. You might check your KDE/GNOME control Panel for info. I don't see why you couldn't delete them in the first place though? If that happens again, check your .kde (assuming KDE) directory for the Desktop directory and see if can remove it from there (via the command line).
