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.

A search at LQ led me to this thread. Fancypiper's instructions have
helped me to burn CD's from command line, as well as in these cute
little GUI packages, for three Linux distros now. Read it and see if you
can't get some answers.
That is good!!!
But it is not suport my language ---- Chinese !
My CD's file name is English now. But it's not matter.
It can create ISO file, burn audio CD, burn data CD and so on.
It is as good as nero.
Distribution: Debian Jessie, FreeBSD 10.1 anything *nix to get my fix
OK.. so maybe, just maybe I was a little upset when I posted earlier.
I managed to get my CD burned in the end by downloading & using X CD Roast.
Im no rocket scientist, but these CD Burner programs appear to be just frontends for the 'real' CD Burner engines built into most Linux systems now. X CD Roast worked without fault. But surely, if ever Linux is going to seriously challange 'non technical' folk to switch to it rather that windows, there is a hell of a lot of work to be done yet.
There can be no excuse - as far as i can see - for any program to be released to the public without adequate dcumentation. Im not saying that everything must work without a glitch. I am saying that if there is a problem, users should have enough information to sort it out from the manual / document.
It is no good saying 'look at the source code stupid'. It was never a requirement to using Linux that you had to be a C / C++ programmer. There was no user doc for ANY of the CD burner progs on my MANDRAKE 9.1 system & this is bad.
It seems to me that if the fundamentals are right (i.e the engine programs that burn the CD's), those who design the frontends need to think again about doing justice to the hard work done by the program designers.

Of course there is an excuse... having a version number less than 1. covers your back from anyone criticising you....
That is right though essentially... the linux is largely centered around development, so people actively want to try these releases, and most work just fine.
