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 am using FC2 with KDE(the version which came with the FC2 release).
I just wanted to know how do I preview audio and video files in KDE? I mean, basically, if I mouse over a *.wav file, it automatically plays its preview. How to make it work for MP3(as that is the most prominent format).
Also, if there is a way to allow Video preview(with MPLAYER?)
Another matter, basically, I use XMMS for audio and MPLAYER for video, so in doing this preview thing, I just dont want to disturb the settings(like double clicking video plays it in mplayer and double clicking audio queues it in XMMS), so please tell me a workaround for that too.
I mean, if I mix up RPM with source installs then basically its difficult to remove and upgrade.
I mean its fine to remove a small application software or even kernel for that matter installed directly from source, but KDE will kind of spread in a lot of directories, and then I wont have an option to upgrade, remove, rollback, etc.
Noone is contributing to the KDE mirrors by adding a RPM for Fedora.
Btw, is there a way to convert the source to an RPM, so that I can use that to install, and maybe remove later....??
