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.

kkempter, hope you don't mind me posting on your thread as this is what I want to be able to do also.
I've downloaded the codecs and put them in /usr/lib/win32. Do I need to tell Xine where to find them? Also, I get an error in Xine saying, "error loading library: cook.so.6.0". There is a file in /usr/lib/win32 with a similar name, but it's just cook.so. What do I need to do to get this working?
Originally posted by Nylex I did put them in /usr/lib/win32 (see post #5), but it still doesn't work.
Not sure about Xine but to install the codecs properly for Mplayer you need to extract them to /usr/lib/win32 before installing or re-compile mplayer... This way it can generate the needed /etc/mplayer/codecs.conf file so it knows the codecs are available...
mplayer -vc help
for a list of already available codecs and there working state...
