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.

At the moment I attempting to install Windows Media Player 10 but when I start to install WMP with wine I'm greet with this error messange
"An unexpected error has occurred. Setup was not able to dect any windows Media Updates. Please try again later."
I say that WMP is looking for a older version to update but of course been linux there is none, what should I do. The file MP10 was downloaded from a non microsoft site but I've use it many times within XP. Thanks in advance

I also tryed yum -y install vlc as Chaddo suggested and it began to update it self but come with this error
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: vlc
Nothing to do
What should I do here? Also I'm trying to get some info on my connection and LAN, in win I would use ipconfig /all, what command do you use for linux.

dunno about anyone else, but that link pointed to more or less a blank page...
tell ya what, skyscraper, why don't you take a look at this well done guide and be sure to pay particularly close attention to the parts about yum and installing media apps (such as VLC) and perhaps you will have some success!
