Hello, this is my first posting, I have a problem where I have recently bought the icnd1 & icnd2 books for the ccna exam, problem is that the discs that come with the books wont load on ubuntu, are these discs just for windows operating system or can they be installed on linux ubuntu as well

Unfortunately, I think all of the Cisco Press books CDs are for Windows. All the ones I have bought are Windows only. You might try installing WINE and running them there.

"Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X, OpenGL, and Unix.

Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available."
