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.

When i try installing the RPM's for version .90-1 of mplayer , it comes up with an error that says
The Following package could not be found on your system.
installation cannot continue until it is installed.
mplayer = 0.90 mplayer-common
What should i do, thats the package I'm trying to install isnt it?
We don't know, we can't see your system If it's asking for it though, most likely that is not the same package. There are several that are needed (or requested) to be installed, you can install all of them at the same time to satisfy the dependancies of each other (looping dependancies).
heres the message i get when i type " mplayer hl2.mpg"

It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support, and read Xv section of DOCS/video.html !
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
