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.

OK... on a related topic, and to save LQ some DB space...
I'm currently an IT admin for a college. The college has been using a dedicated CD image server for about a year now. The server runs on Win2K.
I'm thinking of introducing a Linux server to replace this current one which runs on hardware that is way too good to be deployed as a dumb CD image server.
I know how to create ISO images, and I know how to set sharing access to these files.
The thing is, the current implementation of this CD image server is using VirtualCD for the client-side (all Win98 PCs) to access the images (which is in .VCD format, which I think I can find ways to convert it to .ISO files). The neat thing about this program is that it actually creates another CD drive on the Windows PCs. And when you double-click on a CD image description (on the VirtualCD client app), the image gets mounted onto this "virtual" CD drive.
What I want to know is, does anyone know any freeware Windows app that can mount ISO images as virtual CDs as described above? And can this app access ISO images stored over the network?
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
Originally posted by futurist Thanks, anyway, I think I had better use Nero Burning ROM in windows.
that reminds me of 10 years ago in a computer lab,
when a girl asked me if with word perfect, she could
open a file, and change the disk and save the file,
so she could have copies on 2 different disks.
i said, " i don't know, but i can copy the file to the hard
drive, then copy it to the second floppy." she didn't
understand that was possible, and it scared her, so
she wouldn't let me do it.
anyway, the loopback option is a very simple thing, and
i'm sure the command that creates the .iso image
seems fishy to you too, since you've never used it.
you can use it for floppy images and hard drive partition
The issue here is actually not creating a virtual CD in the sense of the word per se. I don't think futurist even knows what's the meaning of virtual CD. Look at his post (#7) in this thread. He just wants to take part of the CD and put it on his hard drive.
You don't need to convert it into an ISO or whatever. It's the same as in Windows, just copy the folder onto your hard disk!
