Time Event
Hello all. Does anyone know if there is a way in possibly Cdparanoia to specify that it attempt to get track information from cddb? I know this can be done I just forget how to do it. Or would I have to start working on a Perl script that will open a socket and get the tracks that way? I also have never been able to quite figure this one out...Why does obtaining track information only work on original copies of Cds but let's say, not work on my mixed Cds? I'll look through the oggenc manpage also but I don't think I will turn up anything useful.
Can you supermount a file system?
Can you supermount a file system?

For Example

I have an ibook that i mount shares to/from using either samba or netatalk. As it's an ibook, sometimes its here at home, and sometimes it's not - and though it's certainly not a big deal, the question occured to me and some cursorary googling has returned no conclusive results.
Linux distro reviews - My personal experiences
Let me start by saying that I got into Linux in 1996 using Slackware (I forget the version, but pretty low number.) I tried a few others (SUSE, Red Hat, one I can't even remember the name of anymore but was popular back in the day among my friends...) None of them really tickled my fancy to change from Slackware. Then around 1998 I discovered Mandrake and the impact was such that I have not looked into Slackware at all since. It wasn't just about the packages and the code. I loved the people running the company, and the community of Mandrake users were among the most helpful I had ever encountered. But then I started using Linux at work, and the demands there required a more professional back-end, support, training, etc. So, while I kept Mandrake at home, I pretty much became a Red Hat person. Eventually, for ease of use, I switched to Red Hat at home as well. Until... they stopped support for their "Red Hat Linux" line of products. While the server versions are great for a company that needs all the support, etc etc, it's just not what I was looking for.

Disk mounting problems with Debian stable
I just put a second hard drive into a box I have, and then reformated
the whole thing, including both dives, and loaded Debian onto it.
Problem is, I can't seem to mount the second disk.

I've formated it as one big linux partition (ext2), and run the command
mount -t ext2 -w /dev/hdb1 /mnt/bag_of_holding/

to which I get
VFS: Can't find an ext2 filesystem on dev ide0(3,65).
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
or too many mounted file systems

If I run
fdisk -l /dev/hdb

I get
Disk /dev/hdb: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 14946 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Device    Boot  Start  End   Blocks     ID  System
/dev/hdb1  *      1    14946 120053713+ 83  Linux

Any ideas as to what I'm not doing?
Fedora Networking Woes
I was at a job today and for some reason WiFi stopped working. I couldnt get it to work and in the process I totaly screwed up all my networking. Im online through ethernet. redhat-config-network says I have a 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller but I have an Intel EtherExpress/1000 gigabit. If I config it manually it will just go back to the 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller. I also have an Intel Pro Wirelesslan 2100 card. It shows that when I do not have the ipw2100 module loaded but once its loaded it show ipw2100. It also will not go on any WiFi networks, the light for WiFi on my laptop dosnt even come on. None of this was happening before to day, how can I fix this?
