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.

thanks for the reply, this is what i got from doing that:
/dev/cdrom1: invalid argument
mount: block device /dev/cdrom1 is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/cdrom1 invalid argument
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
and i know audio cd's cant be mounted. when i load in the cd, it brings up a gui file explorer window opening the cd to "///burn:" and shows nothing in it. i read up on that, and it says it does that when you put a blank disc in you can drag and drop stuff to it. but i know the disc isnt empty.
BTW, if your interested in CDRW write support you can get your kernel patches here and the udftools here. Format UDF version 1.5 (like this: "cdrwtool -d <device> -v 0x0150 -q") if you want windows to be able to use it.
they dont have my patch for my kernal version. and, i think it doesnt work because the cd isnt actually formated to udf until you choose to do so. because when you do format it, you cant write anymore to it using the direct cd, am i correct? therefore, i cant open it using udf in rh9.

No, that's not how it works with cdrw (I don't know about cdr). The cd must be formatted with a UDF filesystem before data is recorded on it. Then it behaves much like any other writable filesystem. I'm not aware of anything you would need or want to do to it to make it unwritable.
Originally posted by warheros have not tried opening iso6990 cd's.
If you haven't successfully mounted any cd's then the problem is probably the device you're trying to use (/dev/cdrom1). Maybe /dev/hdb, /dev/hdc, /dev/scd0, /dev/scd1, or something will work.
you must close the cd before it can be read in linux. i figured it out. and once you close it, you cant write to it anymore. which kind of messes some things up for me. but anyways, thanks for all the help, i figured it out finally.

I know that it has been some time since anyone put a reply in this forum, however, I'm confused by what someone said. I have a CDR that I wish to be able to read in Linux but I cannot. I need a UDF reader installed to be able to read a CD that I made from Windows using Roxio. I closed the CD but I still cannot read it.
It seems like warheros had success reading an MS Windows UDF CDR with linux, after the CDR was closed. Did you try something like "mount -t udf /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom" and get the error "mount: wrong fs type, bad option,
bad superblock on /dev/cdrom, or too many mounted file systems"?
