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 am having a problem getting streaming shoutcast radio to run in my XMMS package.
XMMS can run CD's and MP3's fine. When I try a shoutcast radio station, the buffer loads to 100%, then the music runs until the buffer is finished, then that is it, until I press the "STOP" button and then the buffer re-loads itself.
What do you suggest I do to trouble-shoot the issue.
XMMS Bugzilla is confusing to me. I don't know how to post a problem or to search the database of problems. (Check it out - definately designed by a IT Parse Congnizent Database user not a 'fresh-off-the-microsoft-bandwagon" user.)
On searching this site, and the XMMS FAQ, I cannot see any reference to this issue. Other folks just plug in the URL and off they go. Me - Plug in the URL, and off I go for 5 seconds ... over and over and over again.
Details : Mandrake 9.1 network install via Linux Format Cover CD's/ xmms 1.2.7 / Gnome Desktop / 20GB / 256DAM / Fresh re-re-reinstall.
