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 feel like a newbie here (maybe I am in a way). I am setting up xine and am attempting to play DVD's with the drive. I am able to play DVD's with mplayer so I know the drive works and must be configured. Also I am able to burn video DVD's since I have played them with mplayer and with my DVD players. So I am confused with what I am missing with xine.
I do not get a DVD button with xine. I have CD, VCD and VCDO
Here is the output from xine-check
Please be patient, this script may take a while to run...
[ good ] you're using Linux, doing specific tests
[ good ] looks like you have a /proc filesystem mounted.
[ good ] You seem to have a reasonable kernel version (2.4.22)
[ good ] intel compatible processor, checking MTRR support
[ good ] you have MTRR support and there are some ranges set.
[ good ] found the player at /usr/bin/xine
[ good ] /usr/bin/xine is in your PATH
[ good ] found /usr/bin/xine-config in your PATH
Usage: xine-config [OPTIONS] [LIBRARIES]
[ good ] plugin directory /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0 exists.
[ good ] found input plugins
[ good ] found demux plugins
[ good ] found decoder plugins
[ good ] found video_out plugins
[ good ] found audio_out plugins
[ good ] /dev/cdrom points to /dev/sr1
[ good ] /dev/dvd points to /dev/sr0
[ hint ] Your DVD drive seems not to be attached via ATAPI.
This might be due to the use of an ide-scsi emulation.
If you really have a SCSI DVD drive, your SCSI controller is likely
to do perfect DMA, so there's no reason to worry about this.
However, if you're using ide-scsi, there is a chance that DMA is
disabled for the DVD drive. Moreover, I don't know how to enable
DMA in that case, so you probably have to live with some performance
loss. (FIXME: check for /proc/ide, provide solution)

[ good ] found xvinfo: X-Video Extension version 2.2
[ good ] your Xv extension supports YUV overlays (improves MPEG performance)
[ good ] your Xv extension supports packed YUV overlays
[ good ] Xv ports: YUY2 UYVY YV12 I420
THe version of xine
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.9.23.
(c) 2000-2003 The xine Team.
I have installed libdvdread and libdvdcss although I am attempting to play a dvd+rw that I created that should not be encrypted.
it means that xine can't found /dev/dvd which was the link it use to determine which your dvd drive are.
i assume that you know how to eject your dvd drive in terminal.
here is an example.
i says that my dvd drive was /dev/scd0 which was scsi emulated.
say you use "eject /dev/scd0" to eject my dvd drive.
then the only thing you need to do was login as root and do "ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/dvd" which links your device /dev/scd0 as /dev/dvd.
