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.

Im new to Linux and Ive tried loads of difirent things, but I cant get my CDRom mounted.
I've tried all the editing fstab as said in most other threads I found, but nothing works. I think it has something to do with my Laptop, Dell has this laptop done a difirent way than normal so that hdc, is the hard drive, so I dont know where Linux should find the cdrom.
You can remove the reference to the nonexistent floppy drive. Perhaps you should try using hdb or hdd. If you have the documentation you can figure out whether to use hdb or hdd. hda would be the master of the first controller, hdb the slave of the first controller, hdc the master of the second controller and hdd the slave of the second controller. If you know how it is physically configured, it should be easy to map it in fstab.
