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.

After i upgraded to RH7.3, X-roast has both my read and my burn cd-rom listed as the same drive. I tried the drop down menu and it dosn't have the other drive listed. How can I fix this. I presume I need to edit some config file but which one?
Ok, just post the contents of /etc/lilo.conf file here, we'll see what we can do.
Plus make up a layout of your drives -
How is cdrom set - primary/secondary master/slave,
how's cd-burner set - primary/secondary master/slave ?
how about trying decent front end program like eroaster? some programs will only look for drives on scsi (or scsi emulation) for reading, which is a bit dumb really IMHO, so you might need to emulate the reader drive as well as the burner (which you can see is already emulated.. yes?)
Neo, thank you very much ! that did it. but it created one other problem, my icon short cut doesn't work right for the burner cdrom now it says:
Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
No it's a bad symlink. Your /dev/cdrom is a symlink to the actual device. Once you made it scsi, you no longer have /dev/hdc or similar. You will now have to make a new symlink to your new scsi device:
ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
That is unless it's scd1 depending on which one is your burner and which is your actual cdrom. If it's scd1 replace scd0 with scd1 in the above line, and so on (so if it's /dev/sr0 then replace scd0 with sr0 and so on).
