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.

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 never have to mount the dvd drive when using mplayer, xine, or ogle. it's unnecessary to mount the dvd drive. in mplayer, if using the phony skin, there's a dvd button that you press if you want it to play dvds. if using other mplayer skins, just right click on the viewer and from the context menu, choose DVD > open disc. in xine, you just press the DVD button. in ogle it's just File > Open disc. mounting your dvd manually in order to view it on mplayer/xine/ogle is unecessary.
Just kill the mplayer process from 'process/task manager' (i think that's the name'. The mplayer doesn't seem to unload itself sometimes after playing vcd/dvd. Most of the time I got problems with vcd. The commad line one is 'top'.
Thanks for the help!
I cant unmount it through on the commandline or otherwise. It only tells me that the unit is occupied. This is after I have closed down every visible application. How can I find out which application is using it and how do I end it? Using 'top' shows me alot of applications running, but I cant figure out which one Im searching for.
