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.

It's 1/3 or 33.3333% at the moment. Managed to get the dvd player working although this isn't really obvious for a novice and people may be bemused after a new Ubuntu install. The way to do it is to go to this link and copy various instructions into the terminal. Then totem, vlc, gxine, kmplayer should work:
