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.

ln /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrecorder
/mnt/cdrecorder is a directory and new_linux_goof 's mount point is /media/cdrecorder according to his fstab. In order to have an ide burner set up you need to have it using scsi emulation and /dev/cdrecorder should be a sym link to /dev/scd#
( "ln -s /dev/scd# /dev/cdrecorder" )
Look for append = "hd#=ide-scsi" in your lilo.conf ( or the equivalent grub file).
# LILO configuration file
# Start LILO global Section
# If you want to prevent console users to boot with init=/bin/bash,
# restrict usage of boot params by setting a passwd and using the option
append="enableapic vga=0x0314 hdb=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi hde=ide-scsi hdf=ide-scsi"
#compact # faster, but won't work on all systems.
# End LILO global Section
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda3
label = linux
initrd = /boot/initrd
even the kde muppets think Noatun is bobbins, you really should start by installing a decent dvd player. Personally i'd recommend you used MPlayer (www.mplayerhq.hu) BUT you always have to compile it from source, and it's a bit tricky at times, in which case i'd also point you towards ogle, and also xine (which i really don't like) they should get you playing dvd's fine (ogle's docs are really good to get started with), at least that way you'll know where this current teething issue is.
Please stick with linux for a while if you're getting a bit lost.. it's worth it, i promise!
