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 had installed redhat 9 on my pc.It recognised my sound card and graphics card.I was able to listen to music. But there was no software to watch movies. So I uninstalled redhat 9 and installed redhat 7.3.
Now here I got graphical user interface, but it could not recognise my sound card.That is, by using the xine software, I was able to watch videos, but could no listen to the diaglogues.
So I then upgraded my redhat 7.3 to redhat 9.
Now, after the upgradation the linux os boots up directly into textmode.When I gave the command startx, yet it failed.
Can anybody of you tell me where did I go wrong, and how to rectify it. My principle aim is to watch a movie on linux os.
My another question is that suppose I have installed redhat 9 on my pc.Can't I just load the xine software from the redhat 7.3 to my pc?
I can't download the xine software from the net, because I have no internet at my home.
My sound card is sigmatelAC97 and chipset is Intel845GL.
