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.

Does anyone know where else i can download this from apart from the home page http://mplayerhq.hu/homepage because there link doesn't seem to work, and also which version should i download as i want to run text based rather than gui? if someone know where i can get an rpm that installs everything i need that would be a great help.
and finally since i'm here how do i install this file MPlayer-0.60.tar.bz2??
What's so wrong with the GUI? Once I finally took your advice and compiled from source, and upgraded my GCC to 3.0 (or 3.1) it was a much better program. But when I run gmplayer, it works just fine. I middle click if I am playing a DVD, or right click for the reg vid files. But, it seems to work fine for regular video watching. If I want to do something more, the command line rules, but what's so bad for regular use with gmplayer (or mplayer -gui)?
it's not stable, and the developers really hate it, and they're the first to admit they don't want it there, and as such it's always the last thing to get developed and bugfixed. and of course, console IS faster.
