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 am trying to backup a DVD onto a Dual Layer DVD+R. I used k3b to backup the ISO to my hard disk. I then tried to burn it using K3b, I got the following few lines:
-media is not formatted or unsupported
-write failed: Wrong medium type
-K3b detected a problem with the media
-Please try another media brand, preferably one explicitly recommended by your writer's vendor
-Report the problem if it persists anyway
-Unable to eject media
I looked around the forums and found some that suggested that I needed a "Dual layer DVD burner." This does not make any sense to me, I would not think that you would need a special burner just because the disc has more space. I normally back my DVDs up on 4.7gb discs after shrinking them with DVDShrink. The problem was I couldn't shrink certain movies so I decided I would try a DVD+R DL. Am I doing something wrong or do I actually need a Dual Layer Burner?
After looking around for a but, I found that growisofs, used by K3b does not support Dual Layer Discs. This would probably explain my problem. Does anyone know of another program I can use to burn an ISO image to a dual layer DVD?
