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.

Please be patient with me, I am new to computers completely not just linux. I have a particular iso image that will burn but the image is distorted in the way that red green and blue are curved on the bottom ofthe screen at different degrees obviously making the movie distorted an unwatchable. I burned it with K3B and NEROLINUX I tried first by simply burning an iso image with both programs, when that didn't work i tried burning it as a compilation. I ran a test in terminal to prove that the file is indeed an ISO and is compadible with iso 9660 software. The md5 sum shows correct.
I'm out of ideas can anybody help me on this matter.
Ummm, an "ISO image" isn't a picture file, but an image of a hard drive. The purpose is to give the computer a virtual drive that it can run from the CD with a system "installed" on it, without touching your installed system. It has nothing to do with looking at pictures.
Mplayer plays the movie beautifully, dvd quality, exceptional 5.1 sound, no skips front to back. Is it possible that it is the progressive scan on my dvd player causing interference? I really don't want to give up but I'm out of ideas. Any thoughts?
I assume the problem lied in the way I have my dvd player hooked up. I hooked it up with component video cables on a High def input, allowing me to only use progressive scan. I then tried a different component input and toggled off progressive scan, that didn't help. Ithen tried S-video........that didn't help. I then took two discs (the same file, one on k3b one on nero) to a friends house to try on his dvd player, it played but it was as if the movie kept pausing and unpausing.
I'm now done with downloading movies as it seems far more benificial to clone them. However I'm still very curious as to why this is because I don't like not knowing something.
