Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

View Poll Results: Video Multimedia Application of the Year
I use mplayer for video and "xmms with xmmplayer plugin" for audio....
mplayer plays almost any kind of file and the codecs work for every video type.....
but gmplayer is a bit painful....
I can't close the video window if I want to hear only audio.....doing so closes gmplayer itself....
acid_kewpie: yes, isn't that program just a front anyway?
anyways, mplayer for me ... soo many output options, i personally love aalib's output (black and white text output ... look cool, or if you want colored text, libcaca, but its a bit shaky i find) ... or a much of images, soo many options!
djworld: kaffine is "xine based" , i guess that means its a front end for xine?
Distribution: SuSE 9.2/MDK 10.1/Nothing Microsoft at all.
Hey team, Xine plays everything I can throw at it.
It can create playlists that can be draged to the desktop and clicked. I can't work out how to do this with mplayer.
It does slow motion. mplayer, as above.
Xine's keyboard controls are easy to learn.
So for me, I guess it's XINE.
