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.

anyway I have ut2003 and it works in linux etc. I tried installing it and would get a i/o error on first disc exiting install. I tried cat, but it did not work (usually it does) ex:
cat /dev/cdrom > /home/exodist/ut2003d1.sio
then i remembered dd
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/exodist/ut2003d1.iso
it ended with an i/o error, however the image it made was exact size as mounted cd.
burned to new dic.. worked fine:
cdrecord speed=16 dev=2,0,0 /home/exodist/ut2003d1.iso
tried using it... success worked perfectly
this command has othe ruses to, but it seems very good for recovering data from bad cd's.. (if not to bad)
I recommend it for restoring data, I do not however think it should be used for illegal copying of disks. we are free software users, not pirates. as well few companies make native linux stuff, if we pirate it all and they don't profit they will cease to make them.. plus it is wrong. I am happy to say I use no pirated software, and ut2003 is only software I pay for :-P
open source forever!!
I never really paid attention to this command till you mentioned it....I had used it to burn a couple of iso's before but never really read the info file for it......there is some pretty interesting things you can do with it......one day Im going to devote an entire day to just reading man and info page for different linux commands......
