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.

Hi, i recently installed slackware 9.1 and i managed to mount my cd drive ( i have two, my cdwriter is an ATAPI-CD ROM DRIVE 50 MAX SPEED, and my cd drive is a TEAC CD W54E) hdc is my cd writer and I have no idea what my other cd drive is. I would like both of them mounting and hdc as a cd writer if possible. I have used the following command
mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
both have returned the following error, but when i try to use the command, the light on my cd writer flashes as if its trying to read.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
or too many mounted file systems
I also need some help mounting my NTFS tab, my friend told me that he did it and is using the same version of slackware as me i have been using the following:
root@soxbox:/dev# mount -t NTFS /dev/hda /mnt/windows
mount: fs type NTFS not supported by kernel
mount: probably you meant ntfs
root@soxbox:/dev# mount -t ntfs /dev/hda /mnt/windows
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda,
or too many mounted file systems
Edit your /etc/fstab at hdc line
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
the "owner" option enable this drive to be mounted by root only
What is called your cdrom drive depends on your hardware configuration.
Assuming your cdrom is installed on 2nd IDE bus as "slave" it should be called /dev/hdd.
In case, you have first to create a /mnt/cdrom1 or whatever you like directory
and then add a line like this to your /etc/fstab
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
This table could help you
/dev/hda primary ide bus master
/dev/hdb primary ide bus slave
/dev/hdc secondary ide bus master
/dev/hdd secondary ide bus slave
hope this helps
PS- you don't have NTFS support from kernel.
If you want to enable mounting NTFS filesystem you need to recompile the kernel, possibly moving to the new 2.6 series
I'm just taking a stab in the dark here; but I think maybe if you try to mount *The Evil OS* as hda1 instead of hda it should work. That's how I get mine mounted; and I've about the same partition table. Maybe.
