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'm having problems trying to play mp3s with XMMS (and other audio players). For XMMS, when I try to play an mp3 it brings up an error that it couldn't play the file with 3 different reaons why it may not be able to play. However, when I log out of my user name and log in as root, I can play the file just fine. Did I screw something up when I installed that rpm (to get mp3s to play)?
chan: Fedora Core 1. The error says that the possible reasons for the problem is that I am not using the right plugin, that my soundcard is being blocked by another device, or that it could be an improperly configured soundcard. The last one isn't the case, and the first one seems like the most likely reason.
