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.

Installed mplayer with alsa.
I built from a mplayer-1.0pre5-2.src.rpm file with alsa and had no errors.
I installed the Rpm's from /usr/src/redhat/RPMS directory, but
what do I do with the files below , where do they go ?
I have mplayer working by using mplayerplug-in from Firefox
but I have no sound in mplayer.
Sound 'test' from Systems Setting gives you sound.
Also when starting Mplayer from /menu/Sound & Video/ Mplayer , it attemps to
run , but shuts down immediately.
This is the error I get when tryingto run 'gmplayer'
from command line.
