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.

Im not sure what X devel is, this is my first time installing linux. I tried all the -vo outputs, but none were sucessful. It echos alot about not being able to find certain fdirectories, and I am wondering where would be the best place to isntall this software?
where you downloaded it to is not where you installed it to.. rpm yes? installhttp://fr2.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat/8.0/i386/XFree86-devel-4.2.0-72.i386.html or the equivalent from your distro cd's IF you are compiling mplayer from source, which you still haven't said about
