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.

XMMS was fustrating. Red Hat 9.0 doesnt have support for it. I had to goto their website and download an rpm to have mp3 support. I am using mplayer. Seems fine - actually playing my divX better than windows media player. mmm. Suprise Suprise.

Thanks for the info guys
This is why Redhat is aimed more for the corporate world and less to the desktop users out there.I thought it was bull sh** when they came out with 8.0 and had no mp3 support. And obviously they did'nt read the forums alot of people were bitchin about it. And then they release 9.0 and its said they skipped 8.1 and went straight to 9.0 to keep up with rival Mandrake. Well if there trying to keep up with Mandrake add the dahm mp3 support.
Yeah it seemed strange. I not sure If i should go back to mandrake. I mean i didnt have a problem with it and it ran faster and supported NTFS and mpeg from a clean install. For a distro that was based on redhat I can see why they are winning more users.
