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.

Now Ive been running slack for a while (this install of it) and never bother to get my cdrw working .. couldnt even mount it. Today I wanted to rip a cd and well windows xp decided that it no longer wanted to work.. ( I have to reinstall it every day seems like ) I created a directory /mnt/cdrw then edited fstab as follows:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,user,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,owner,user,ro 0 0
And did ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/cdrw
Now I can read from my cdrw drive and all that other good stuff...Now I installed a cd ripper program and it gave a error of not being able to read the cd in /dev/cdrom... so I figured.. duh didnt mount it.. and went to go mount it and got a error saying to many devices mounted,bad superblock etc... Tried unmouning.. reported not mounted, tried various ways of mounting some 20 diff ways as root and user and still same errors. This is the cdrom I used to install slack and have used less than 5 minutes before going and tried to get my cdrw working...
