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.

I'm having some trouble getting mp3's to work with Fedora core 1 (Yarrow). I downloaded the xmms-mp3 file that was recommeded here in another thread, installed it and that did not work. I used rpm -e to remove xmms and the xmms-mp3 installs and then I used apt-get to get the newest version of xmms and the xmms-mp3 plugin. That also did not work. In fact that has caused xmms not to play any kind of files at all now. Before it would play .wav but not .mp3, now it plays neither.
I then used apt-get to get xine and mplayer. Now both of these players will play mp3, but not kaboodle, xmms or any of the other players that were originally installed with Fedora. How can I get mp3s to play in these
players? I would like to use xmms for my music and it will no longer work.
Another problem is that xine will play video but mplayer will not. I get an error from mplayer saying that it cannot open the video output device -vo. Xine plays video but I would rather use mplayer for it.
