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 upgraded to mandrake 10 rc1 and almost everything has been perfect. The one program that doesn't work now is k3b. I don't know why but I can't burn (there is no burning device in the menu). So I checked k3bsetup again and the drives are there. External programs cdrdao and cdrecord. When I hit apply I get a message 'there is no group burning'.
Anyone got a clue of how to fix it or what to look for??
thanks in advance
Is that in k3bsetup? Because when I checked configure k3b - devices, I found my cdroms under reader but not writer. When I try to add /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 I get the message 'Could not find additional device at /dev/cdroms/cdrom0'...
The funny thing is that under reader, in the same menu, k3b finds my cdrw and it says 'Write CD/RWs: yes' but it still won't recognize it under writers. So where is it I should add the burning group?
At the top of k3bsetup it says 'Use burning group: burning', so the group is there. Permissions for the devices are 666 and for cdrdao + cdrecord : 4711. Could it be the permissions for cdrdao/cdrecord?
Help is appreciated - (I mostly want to burn some ISOs and try slackware alongside Mandrake)
