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.

originally i had problems playing any video files, i found at that this was because the selected video driver in mplayer had some conflictions (or something) with my video card. however the X11 (XImage/Shm) works with my video card, however, it wont let me play in fullscreen. if i tell it to go to full screen (either commandline or with gui) it only makes the area around the video black and it centers the window. so im asking are there any other drivers i can get so i can get full screen playback?

the WARNING this is not optimal part kinda caught my attention. also i have a crappy video card that came with my Sony from Wal*Mart (w00t) SiS or something or other... i really should buy another graphics card....

It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support, and read Xv section of DOCS/video.html !
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
I have the same problem on my laptop which uses ATI Rage Mobility M4 card and uses the ati rage 128 mobility driver.
I have tried the -zoom option, -vo xv, and -vo sbl. In all three cases, the video plays in slow motion, while the audio plays in normal speed. Upon exiting, I get an error about the system being too slow. (It is a PIII 900 MHz with 192 MB RAM). Any ideas to resolve this? If I play the video without "zoom", everything plays fine, except for the size of the image and black bars surrounding it.
