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.

Meanwhile, Radionomy intends to offer Winamp’s media player just as it is today — with access to those 60,000 stations, but also playback ability for 60 audio and video formats; 6,000 add-ons like skins and plug-ins; and availability in 16 languages.
You guys aren't using vlc and mplayer to listen to music, right? Right?
Nah but it can be used for that task if nothing else works. Speaking of such stuff....i remembered KMPlayer. If you need also audio convertion i guess JetAudio works too otherwise it is too much bulky.
A lot of good CLI options eliminate the need for powerful systems and bloat (less glitches) I like randomplay as well:
Randomplay plays your music collection (or execute any arbitrary commands on
any arbitrary filetypes) in random order, remembering songs played across
sessions. It also has many features to make command-line music playing more
convenient, including recursive regexp searching for tracks and the ability to
specify a certain number of tracks, bytes, or minutes to play. Randomplay
will also generate a list of music files to be loaded onto a portable music
player device. It includes a 'random weighting' feature, so your favorite
songs are more likely to come up in the random shuffle.
Randomplay is a convenient tool for the user who does everything in an xterm
window or console and is constantly devising complex find/grep/sed command
lines to play just the right set of songs.
it cost me $2.00 at a rummage but only had the keyboard, motherboard, three cards: i/o controller, serial interface, "keyboard end"\micro-sci and all its chips. I assume I need a floppy drive to do anything but have not tried?
Just got it out the closet booted found: http://youtu.be/e8KdaFNhmLw http://youtu.be/e8KdaFNhmLw nothing happens on soft reset but some code flashes by then back to "Apple ][" so I tried closed apple+control+reset and get some "graphics" (sideways venetian blinds) then:
no appertain prompt tho...
I may need to start a retro question in hardware (most will be like "Why ask here?") if I can't get past "Apple ][" and "RAM:" or do I just need eBay?
