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.

Im having a problem.
I got a game that use 2 cds.
So i mount the first cd, then start the install (using cedega 4.4-1).
Then after a while it asks for second cd, so i try to umount the cd.
Permission declined. Anyone got any tips what to do to get this to work?
...or if you're using point2play to install just click on the "mount" button. This ejects the cd drive allowing you to switch cds, then click "mount" again, this will close the drive door and continue the install.
Try to run the setup program without CD'ing to the directory first. For example, if the cdrom is mounted at
the cd to /mnt and start the setup program:
Another thing to try, if you have the room on your disk is to copy the files to a directory on disk and try to install the software that way.
Other things to try but I don't know if they will work:
Try umount as root, and use the -f option (force).
When you mount the CDROM, use the -n option. This will not update /etc/mtab, and is normally used when the filesystem is read-only, as in an embedded system. I don't know if this will help. When you umount, use the device reference rather then the mountpoint reference. By that I mean, umount -f /dev/hdd rather than umount /mnt/cdrom. ( Your device name may be different.)
Lastly is to use a paperclip in the tiny emergency eject hole, if your CDROM drive has one.
