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 Just Installed SUSE 10 64 bit Edition Last Night, I Went To Use Amarok To Play My MP3's on my mounted NTFS drive..but it wouldnt play, ive been spending all day doing research on how to fix this...ive downloaded arts, helix, mad, every plugin or engine i could find but it still doesnt work...im quite frustrated and out of ideas, realplayer DOES play them but it sounds so horrible id rather take time to solve this problem...
PS:the actual problem is ill click a song or playlist and it just skips to the next song till it gets to the end...my sound card is installed and working and the only time i get errors is when i try to install a different xine library...
help me please! i wanna finish this so i can move onto vid card and cedega >.<
might sound stupid, but this exact thing happened to me. make sure to check that your files are actually
mp3 format. if they are m4a, or whatever the itunes extension is, then amarok is unable to read them. this
happened to me.
I have the same problem as fallenfantasy. No progam in suse 10 will not play mp3's or any other format of music or video including mpeg's, .avi's etc. I am new to linux and really liking it so far, but I really have no idea what is going on.
As I said b4 im new to linux and one of the things I dont know how to do is install stuff. (how can something so simple be so difficult)? Can anyone give me some info or somewhere I can go to get info?

On suse you can install new packages by going to YAST (the green icon with the wrench), then go to software managment and enter your root password, yast will load up and read all the package repositories you have and then you can search for and install packages.
Also, you should probably follow the link above and follow the instructions on how to add those repositories.
