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 first like to say thanks because without this site I wasn't able to listen to music at all.
I have a HP Pavilion 752n PC. I dropped in a second hard-drive and installed Redhat 9 without a hitch. Sort of, some things seem to be entirely too slow.... but thats a different issue.
According to the Hardware Browser in Redhat the CD-R/RW is a Cyberdrv CW058D and the DVD is a HL-DT-STDVD-ROM GDR8160B. I couldn't confirm this on the HP site because for the technical specs they just don't give any details about the drives.
I eventually figured out that to use XMMS to play any music CDs at all I had to install the Audio CD reader. I never cracked the case to confirm that the audio cable that normally runs from the CD player to the audio card is missing.
So, if I place a regular music cd in the CD-R, XMMS will lock up about 15 seconds into the first track. I have to kill the process to get XMMS to close.
If I place a music CD with both music and data, like the young and hopeless by Good Charlotte, then XMMS has no issues with it.
For the DVD player, it'll play music CDs just fine.
