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 have ogle install in my laptop, so I think when I insert a dvd movie, the computer suppose to auto play it. that was not the case; and when I type /dev/dvd in the terminal, it says permision is denied.
please tell me what should I do to make the dvd-drive to autoplay dvd movie.
by the way, my computer is a toshiba 3005-S304 laptop that I use mandrake 8.1 as the operating system
mmm... don't think that the css is the problem. that's already been cracked. it's probably a problem with the automounting of the dvd drive. i don't use ogle, so i can't really test out any of my advice here ... but you might need to mount the dvd drive before you can use it. check the ogle page http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/
for the FAQ and manual. check on freshmeat.net for any dependencies that you might need to add.
I would recomend you to use xine version 0.9.7 instead of ogle. You can install some plugins to use the navigation menu. If you want to play encrypted dvds then you must install another plugin that will play them (but I think that will be illegal).
Xine is a good dvd player and supports a lot of formats (including DivX), thats the player I use to play dvds, give it a try.
technically, any open source dvd player, xine or ogle, or anything else, is illegal, if it can use the dvd-css decryption. whether or not you happen to agree with that isn't really relevant, it's still illegal... but, then again, chaining a giraffe to a lamppost is specifically forbidden in Saginaw.
since the css was cracked, there's really no way to stop people from using it.
Since y'all (yes I'm in the "south") seem like Xine pros, can you help me on installing it on my machine? I am running Mandrake 8.0 and I tried the RedHat RPM's and did the fix I found on it, but it didn't work - I tried compiling the source, but when I ran "./configure" it gave me errors towards the end of it and Make gave me errors as well.
Any suggestions how I can install a DVD player on my Linux so's I can meet y'all in prison? <grin>
