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.

I just received a new PC with SUSE 9.2 preinstalled. When I put a disk in the DVD-RW it is accessible and files can be read from it easily.
However, when I run Yast2 to install some additional software, it asks for a disks to be inserted in the drive and never finds it. I get the error: Media not attached.
Also when I run a flight simulator, the DVD can be used to install the program but during operation the flight simulator stays in demo mode because it can't find the DVD disk that is sitting in the drive.
Does it ask you for dvd or cd?
Also, you need to click on the yast button that says "Installation Sources" and make sure it thinks your going to use a cd or dvd in the drive, as it may have been loaded off of a network and not see the drive as a source of files.
For the games, you'll have to make sure the computer knows where the dvd drive is. Linking it to /dev/hdc should be good enough for suse 9.2 unless you have multiple drives.
I didn't ask if it askes for the disk to be inserted, or for you to check you device settings.
You need to look first in yast, and find out what it thinks is the source of the installation packages. It will say "DVD 1" or "CD 1" in the installation software even if it is set to FTP install.
Second, you need to check the settings "in the program that cannot find the disk" as it may be looking for a non-existant device.
