I recently decided to try out Ubuntu and have a couple of questions. I have RT'd a couple of FMs
and tried to wade thru this list's archives with no luck. I'm running Ubuntu 7.10.
1. What is the purpose of having both /media/cdrom and /media/cdrom0? I realize one is a link
to the other but I'm wondering why both exist. The same applies to /media/floppy and
2. When trying to add content to a rewritable DVD that has previously been written to I get the
warning that I don't have permission to write to that directory. When I try to chmod 777(as
root)/media/cdrom0 I'm told it is a read only directory even tho /etc/mtab shows it mounted as rw.
What am I missing?
Please forgive the simplistic questions.I've been running Redhat for close to 10 years but it
seems there is a learning curve when going to a Debian based distro.
