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 not much into movies, I want it to be mainly centered around music because that is what the box I am going to install this on will be used for. My biggest problem is a) I have no internet b) I can't stand konqueror or nautilus for my songs. Both of them take forever and again to load a list of 5000 songs (which is a 1/4 of my CD collection) so I am kind of leery about using linux for it. I really want to but if I continue ripping I am going to end up with a 5 minute load to look at the songs.
I guess an alternative to konqueror would work, but I really like the 'list' mode of windows explorer. Its a side by side list of things and you scroll horizontally. In windows, even with 5000 songs, it loads instantaly.
GNUmp3d is what i use, it acts as a music server and if you sort your music well then you can use it to find then play the files you want. And then you can hook it up to any other comps on an Ethernet link too! I use XMMS to play music, still. Haven't found another app that does the job quite to my liking other than XMMS, but you prob know what you like if you have LFS!
