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.

$ mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
What 'type' of cdrom was this(music or data)?
You have to edit your fstab file to add an entry for your cd-rw. Something like this: /dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
Add this line to your lilo.conf just under #Start Lilo global section: append="hdx=ide-scsi" replace the x in hdx with the appropriate drive letter(c or d, depends on it's position on the cable).
Next create a mount point for your cdrw: mkdir /mnt/cdrw
Then create a soft link between /dev/hdx and /dev/cdrw: ln -s /dev/hdx /dev/cdrw
And finally, either add the user to the cdrw group or change it's permissions so that anyone can use it.

Right click on xmms, scroll down to options, select preferences.
Under input plugins, choose CD Audio Player.
Make sure that 'enable plugin' is checked then click on configure.
Make sure the correct drive is selected.
Under 'Play mode'
select either 'analog' or digital audio extraction'(analog works for me).
Then click on 'check drive'. It will tell you if it passes or fails.
Click 'ok', and then click 'apply' and try and play a cd.
If it doesn't play, click on 'pl' (playlist), click 'add'.
A new window should open up. Make sure the path in the new window is pointing to /mnt/cdrom. Then click 'add all files in directory'.
