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.

Yes, there are many players for Linux but I think you are missing a codec (your .avi file must be encoded in some way - mpeg, for example). You might already have a player, I think RH whould come with a player of some sort.
Here are some links (and do not forget to get the codecs too):
...just wanted to mention that Mplayer has a nice GUI frontend too, it is called gmplayer. You can find out all about it on the mplayers website, but I would recomend you look for rpm (specific to you particular distribution) on rpm site, for example: http://rpmseek.com/index.html?hl=com http://rpm.pbone.net/
One can also download plugins and skins for mplayer so that it looks slick and can do more. :-)
Ok guys will try this all
