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.

Though, if you need to really install eterm, imlib2-devel, imlib2, libmonobo(I think) and libmonobo-devel(I think) is what you are looking for.
About mplayer, rpm's are bad. Try compiling it from source instead. It's just as easy and won't make you tear your hairs apart with dependancies...
RPM's should be banned. Each distro has it's own set of RPM's... each distro version (RH9.0, RH7.0, which are the same distros) uses differents RPM's. It's bad for the user (time consuming, noone knows which package to install and peoples without time, simply uses another OS, unfortunately), bad for Linux developers (they/we need to release this package, that package) and etc. Try compiling from source as often as you can or if you use RedHat, try getting apt-get.

I got aterm to work, yet Eterm looks such my better.
What do you mean compiling from source?
I did download apt-get for RH9(is my system)
but I don't fully understand how it works.
got any good sites to read up on about "source" or apt-get?
i downloaded apt-get but i don't think the install worked, i got a few other versions but i think its pointless to install it because my linux box isn't on my network. i downloaded bashish not aterm, i'm taking a look for aterm on google right now thanks again
hehe, I also love Capcom Games... all of them, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Megaman .
Well, when you mean network, do you mean that you connect to the internet thru a modem? If so, it should still help anyway, but would be slow for large packages (I think, I've never tried that with a modem, only broadband)
Good luck Sorry I could not help ya with eterm, but maybe someone here will
I guess what I mean I ain't got no internet connection with my linux box, i type now on a 98se mechine which has dsl connection. all programs i download i'v been burning and putting them on my laptop, I ain't got no hub to hook my linux box to the net
