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.

Ok, my learning of linux is coming along good. I am getting a good grasp on how ti install most software and hardware. However, I am having trouble installing winamp. This is what I am doing in konsole, this is exactly what I typed:
(took me to my desktop just fine)
rpm –ivh Winamp-0.a1-1.i386.rpm
(below is the response konsole gave me)
RPM version 4.4.1
Copyright (C) 1998-2002 - Red Hat, Inc.
This program may be freely redistributed under the terms of the GNU GPL
but it did not actually do anything.
Now I noticed it said "Copyright (C) 1998-2002 - Red Hat, Inc." at the top, does this mean it is only for red hat? I know the file I am trying to install is older, but shouldn't it still work? Shouldn't kubuntu still work with it? Thnx for any help. I am still reading and learning a lot about konsole so most likely something small that I just don't know yet.
