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.

well i dnt know how to put this problem but i will try..........
when i run xmms on terminal i dnt get any errors!!!!!???? (silly me).....but when i click on the play button it pops up a window asking me to specify the directory where the thing that i want it to play should be coming from.....when i choose cdroms and hdc...the window disappers and nothing happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i click on the play button the same thing happens again and again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!help please..........
It might help if you specified your distribution and version (and xmms version, for that matter)...alas, here goes:
1) Are you sure your CDROM is working? Can you mount and read data CDs?
2) do you have all the necessary dependencies installed for XMMS?
3) If you use the 'play file' to browse /dev/cdrom, the audio files should be seen, named e.g. Trackname.cda. If you select all or some you should hear music...
1) my cdrom does work fine...i can mount and read data and mount cd's
2) i dont know any dependencies for xmms... i am new to linux...less than 4 months..
3)i dont see anything when i use 'play files', what you sad i will see,, i dnt see it...but i do see other staffs.. like the directory dev and what it has...
i have given up on it and concluded that its crap on my laptop.....!!!!!!
