Steal This computer book 2
I've just read this book and it's great for beginners on everything from virus' to encryption. Great book with lots of humor in it as well.
The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his.

The reason that the cd does not work is because it contains an image file, this may be why it keeps bringing up your cd writer software. The people who made the cd either purposely burned the image onto the cd to hassle us or made a error in burning the image to cd. There are various programs out that can read the contents of the image or you can use burning software such as nero to burn the image onto another cd properly. Hope this helps.
The book and cd run for $24.95
