WORKBONE 2.3
 
     Workbone is a text-based utility that plays audio cd’s.  For it to function, your computer will need a sound card with support that is configured in the kernel or as a module (review compiling kernel tutorial).  Sound card support is not configured into the original install of Monkey, but for some reason I could get Workbone to play music on my computers.  Just place your favorite cd in the CD-ROM drive and try running Workbone to see if it works for you.  You’re also going to need to know which device name is associated with your CD-ROM (review CD-ROM tutorial).  Follow these steps to see if it works:
     1. Link /dev/cdrom to the correct device.  If you have an
        IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM like I do, then you'd do something
        similar to this:
          cd /dev             CHANGE TO /dev DIRECTORY
          ls -l cdrom         LIST WHICH DEVICE cdrom IS LINKED TO
          rm cdrom            DELETE INCORRECT cdrom LINK
          ln -s hdc cdrom     CREATE NEW cdrom LINK
     2. Change ownership of the CD-ROM, so users (other than
        root) can use Workbone, with the following command:
          chmod 666 /dev/cdrom
     3. Place an audio cd in the CD-ROM tray and start Workbone.

     If you correctly completed step 1 then Workbone will initialize itself and a text console will appear on the screen.  The control functions correspond with your keyboard’s number pad.  The ‘Num Lock’ key must be activated for the controls to work.  Here’s a look at the text-console and a break down of the key-pad controls:
               +---| number pad |---+
               |                    |
               |   []    ||    =>   |
               |                    |
               |   <     ^^     >   |
               |                    |
               |   <<    ..    >>   |
               |                    |
               |   quit         ?   |
               +--------------------+
