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.

i have slack 9 installed and i need to burn some cd images. i have a sony cd burner. i run "cdrecord -scanbus" to see what my sony burner is and i get this.... "Permission Denied. Cannot open '/dev/sg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver."
so, i log into root and i get "No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
i dont know what to do, but in all other linux distros i've tried its worked perfectly... never even had to touch any of the burner settings.. thanks for helping
donīt know perhaps it will help.
i had the same problem so try to find do you have scsi (go to kde configure center-> information -> scsi) if you have it skip this part
try to find burners connection is it hdb hdd hdc .......... (red info then slack boots ) later reconfigure lilo in console write su later yours root pasword after that liloconfig reconfigure it and then you will be asked for scsi (f*** forget but there will be example just just make shore is it hda hdb ........) reboot and check for scsi in kde control center
I suggest you to use K3b for cd burning, but after install write in console as root
That's great Fatal 3rr0r, I'm glad the link was useful. I likewise was running into some trouble initially when setting up my rig but found that page and it did the trick.
By the way as I expect you discovered by checking out the links fancypiper cited, TLDP is an awesome thing, and at least as far as I'm concerned is the "end all be all" Linux reference resource. http://www.tldp.org/ -- J.W.
I was having similar problems, and clicked on the above link, but I still had problems, then I remembered...I had slack install lilo on the MBR of hda.
My setup is:
hda4 rescue (just a clean slack9 install that I only us if I have a problem)
Aside from the funky partitioning, it all works. However, Just editing the /etc/lilo.conf doesn't work on mine because the system uses the lilo installed on the MBR. I had boot into my rescue partition and run liloconfig there, because for some reason, running it from slack9 didn't work.
Anyway, thanks for the link. It helped a lot and I'm blanking a CDRW right now.
