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 would just jump in if I were you, by the time a 100gig+ ogg player is available you will have 200gig of music and be looking for a bigger one yet again. We have to remember our needs grow as fast or faster than technology.
Thanks all. I was afraid of this. I think I'll still have to wait a while before taking the music player plunge then. It's OK....I guess I'm not "dying" to have one right now anyway. I can wait.
Until I can get my entire (or close to) collection on the device, I won't be satisfied. And I'd like to convert all MP3 files to OGG as well if possible.
Actually, going from MP3 to OGG-Vorbis is not so good. From the FAQ at Vorbis.com:
You can convert any audio format to Ogg Vorbis. However, converting from one lossy format, like MP3, to another lossy format, like Vorbis, is generally a bad idea.
If you still have the source format, you can go from that original source to Vorbis, in most cases, and end up with a better sounding file. Going from mp3 to Vorbis just causes more loss to be incurred.
