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.

Hey, I've been searching around the site, and the conversations regarding this topic are over a year old. I've been using mp3s for quite some time now, but I never had the foresight to take care in filenames, tags, directories, etc. Now I pay the price with all these mp3 files, but no way of figuring out what's what, and is it repeated.
Does anybody else have this problem, if not, how did you take care of it? If I could find some software or script out there to save me from my mp3 mountain, it would be amazing. I don't want to sit down for a whole weekend to trudge through this stuff, but I'm reaching the point where that may be necessary.
I've been thinking about making a script to go through my mp3 files and read the ID3s, and then organizing the files from that information, as I am having the same problem. Of course, somewhere along the line you either have to have an orderly filename or an orderly ID3 tag, or else there is no basis for a filter.
I had a problem with 2 gb of mp3's, all in one directory. I used easytag to create the id3 tags, although it took some time. Its a really nice program. I use rhythmbox as my mp3 player and it read the tags and sorted my muxic. I can now pick by artist, genre or album. Its a great player almost like Itunes. Check out easytag and rhythmbox. It really cleaned up my collection.
