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.

A friend of mine managed to get authorization to install Linux on one of our old P2 350s. The idea is to make a system that can burn half a dozen to a dozen of CDs by pressing a buttong, or entering a simple command.
Thus far we've tried several how-tos and scripts. Has anyone gotten two or more CD burners to burn the same data simultaneously with RedHat?
Well, my coworker is pretty sure that his inability to write to more than one drive at a time is a limitation of IDE. He's pretty confident that on SCSI or Firewire it would work. Care to comment on that? Are we wasting our time pursuing this route?
Is there some other hardware modification we might use to achieve this? Perhaps some sort of adapter that, for example, had one I/O cable to the IDE buss, and several OUT, one IN cable going to multiple identical CDRW drives.
Basically the idea is that with identitical drives recieving identical data simultaneously we would thus be able to burn CDs simultaneously.
Thanks for the info on the dual CD burning option though, we'll definately look into that.

-fixed mkisofs 1.14 problems
-audio on-the-fly burning (even corrupted mp3-files)
-saving/loading of projects
-atip and toc info
-cd-ripping (wav) with extended pattern support
-play audio cds
-hide first track on audio-cds
-detection of ide-devices as cd-rom
-blanking of cdrws
-writing of existing iso-images
-optional setting of cdrdao driver for every scsi-device -burn in the background (it's even possible to write on two writers simultaneous or write a cd and create an image (if your system is fast enough ;-))
-K3b checks for an empty disk before writing!
-and like everytime some other stuff i cannot remember ;-)
hey i am not worried about what processor you need, he asked a question and he got the answer...and that is that..
you say you can't
proud says impossible...
and i just wanted to point out, that you can and that its not impossible..
I meant more than 2 cds at a time would be impossible/limited by the physical fact that you only have 2 cd writers to take and burn 2 cds at any given instance :P
If you have a large number of writer drives connected or accessable in some way (network shared?) then multiple instances of your burning app should be able to do it on a powerful system. Using the command line and a script would probably be more reliable than having X + Kde apps running.
