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 did search, and didnt find anything releavant. i burn a backup from a partition on my drive, so i open k3b and select new data dvd project... i put in the dvd+r, i select the files, i click burn, and it burns with all defaults. SUCCESS!! then i put the disc back in and run mount /mnt/dvd and it cant read the superblock.. i am using auto for the filesystem in fstab, ido have udf support in the kernel, i do have new versions of dvd+-rw tools, i have packet writing enabled in the kernel. i also tried different values in k3b, all kinds of them... still no luck, sometimes wont even burn. ( like if i say discatonce, it just says no medium, then dvd+r (empty) but wont write). i cant figure this out. i put it in a windows computer, and nothing. there are no files. if i put the same disc into the drive adn start up k3b, it says it is blank. what am i doing wrong. i am running slackware 10.2, and i am not a newb... i dont think....
EDIT: i didnt mention, i am running 126.96.36.199, but i do have ide_scsi in it, for dvddecrypter with wine, but it is modular, and i am not loading it, and i dont have ide-scsi in my grub... could that be causing it....???
yeah, i tried mounting it with the fstab with mount /mnt/dvd then i tried mount -t udf /dev/hdc /mnt/dvd i also tried auto as type... nothing will mount, just says bad superblock... so, hm.. i do know that ide-cd is built in, well you can option it out, but yeah.. i know you dont need ide-scsi anymore with 2.6 kernels, and they are solid, and all that.... i just did it for the wine thing, but i figured well il recompile without it just in case, so i did.. i havent tried it yet. appearently i had the clockmod set to 175mhz (cause i was playing) and it took a long time and i was asleep.. ill try it when i get back, and post wheather or not it helped.,, but i dont think it will matter. got any other ideas.. do you think it is hardware. .... i dontknow.
