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.

Can anyone explain how I can setup an MP3 player with Fedora 2? I've tried downloading XMMS 1.2.10(src.rpm), but can't seem to install it, a window is displayed reporting that there is no action associated with this file.
don't get source rpm (srpm) but a normal rpm, like -i386.rpm or -i686.rpm or anything that doesn't have the src or srpm in it's name. then open up a terminal and start something like
rpm -i xmms-pkg-name.rpm
where xmms-pkg-name.rpm is the name of the rpm file you d/loaded. if that won't work, check
to see the correct option for install...upgrade is, I guess, u or U and install should be either i or I (small or big). when you get it installed, try to play some mp3-files..if you can't (no plugin installed or something), you lack the mp3-plugin for xmms. so surf to xmms.org and grab it from their downloads section, should be found there, and install it the same way you did xmms too...that should be it.
Don't use redhat kde packages but download and install:
You will have full mp3 ogg flac support in kde programs like noatun, kaboodle...
P.S. that packages are for kde 3.2.2 version that i have downloaded and installed simply
is better than kde version that came with fedora core1!!!!
