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 installed K3b, 0.10.1, among with other stuff such as DVD+RW tools. I also installed my new dvd-writer that can handle both -R/W & +R/W discs.
But when trying to write a dvd-rw, K3b returns the following error:
K3b Version: 0.10.1
KDE Version: 3.1.3
QT Version: 3.1.2

:-( Failed to change write speed: 2822->2704

I use scsi-emulation for all my optical drives.
But why can't it change speed? Faulty writer or is there a setting or something I should change somewhere?
Wouldn't be a Sony would it? That's exactly the problem (among others) I was having with a new Sony 510A. I found on the Sony website that even when by itself the Sony will not work right if pinned "Cable Select" but has to be pinned "Master" when alone. I changed the pinning and now it's great other than the fact that it sounds like a thrashing machine while burnibg a CD.
Nah, it's a NEC ND-1300A. And I've pinned it as master, for some reason I never use cable select. But, master, sec. ide-channel and a slave NEC CD-ROM (old).
But perhaps I should try having it alone on that ide-channel?
