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 that much a newbie but i do have problems with xmms too. xine and others have no problems playing my mp3 but, however, xmms has. somehow xmms is running through an 5 min mp3 in a few seconds without playing any sound. already tried different versions of xmms (original fedora core2) or the rpms from freshprms.net (sure i installed the mp3 plugins) nothing is working correctly. maybe somebody out there knows the answer.
