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.

One of the criticisms of recent Red Hat releases by home users has been the lack of default multimedia support. Unfortunately, Fedora is no different. And due to licensing issues, Xmms is crippled with an MP3 placeholder plugin, so it can't play MP3 audio files. Fedora also was not able to include media players such as Mplayer or Xine. On a more positive note, a new package called Sound-Juicer has been included for extracting music from CDs. RhythmBox also is offered for managing and playing your media library and connecting to Internet radio stations; it's a program similar to Apple's iTunes. RhythmBox has the same limitation as Xmms, however, in that it does not include the MP3 plugin.
