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.

Personally, it is a "non error" error message. Uncomment the lines and ignore it. Better that than no optical drives
I've had this error message for years. Don't worry about it.
I kind of guessed this. Googling a little i saw it in many posted dmesg's. Anyway commenting the lines did not "fix" it either...it just stoped my cd drives from working.
Thank you both for your replies
I'm a new slackware user. It's definitely the best distro i ever tried
Try putting "alias scsi_hostadapter off" in your /etc/modules.conf
This didn't work either but the message dissapeared after i recompiled my default kernel.
I don't know how i solved this since i changed a lot of things, added himen support, used athlon insted of 486, striped my scsi hd and tape support, removed framebuffer support. probably the scsi hd support was to blame.
Thaks for your replies
