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.

I have a question about xmms. I recently installed the wrong version of xmms, the Redhat version, not the Fedora version. So I downloaded the correct version and tried to install it, yet it says it is already installed. so I used the advice on this thread, yet I get this error:
[root@localhost /]# whereis xmms
xmms: /usr/lib/xmms /usr/share/xmms /usr/share/man/man1/xmms.1.gz
[root@localhost /]# rm /usr/lib/xmms
rm: remove directory `/usr/lib/xmms'? y
rm: cannot remove directory `/usr/lib/xmms': Is a directory
now why in the world cannot I remove a directory under root?
and I tried installing the xmms-mp3 file, that worked, but all xmms does is play the mp3 and the numbers count really fast, and no sound comes out of xmms. So I think it might have the wrong version.
Does anybody else know of another way to remove xmms? or can solve my problem?
