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.

On one of my boxes using 9.0 Prof the CDROM won't mount.
When I try to mount it I get the following message:
"Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified"
fstab looks like this:
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
I also find fstab.pre-captive, which is the one the system actuallu uses. The entry for the drive is identical here.
But I'm not home and dry yet. It will mount data CD's, but not music or DVD (and so xine doesn't work either). When trying to mount it reports that it cannot determine file type. xine reports no plugin for dvd/: available.
Music CDs don't actually get mounted to view the contents of a Music CD open up your Konqueror file browser and type "audiocd:/" in the address bar.
As far as DVD playback goes you will want to install xine on your own since the version contained on the SuSE CD/DVD is limited due to legal resons surrounding DVD decryption on Linux. Go to PackMan to get a good version of xine and all it's libraries.
