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.

OK, I just spent way longer than planned on getting MPlayer installed... I got the all-in-one codec pack, and installed those, got a buncg of other things like ogg, vorbis, and libdvdread and stuff... and now, when I try playing a DVD, I get the audio but the video shows up as just GREEN... and then when I close the program, my graphics all over my screen are messed up. I am using the GUI.. I got some error the FIRST time I tried to play a DVD but it doesn't come back now...
I am using Slackware 9.1, Kernel 2.6.1, and KDE 3.1.94. Everything else is running great!1 I have an nVidia GeForce2 Go 32MB graphics card in a Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop... I am using the nVidia Linux driver...
Any idea what I am not doing right??

in need of advice concerning an inspiron 8000 setup
I also have an Inspiron 8000 laptop, and have tried to install Slackware 9.1 on it, with.. issues.
I've got problems getting ALSA to let me have access to my mixer and other similar problems. I was thinking that I could recompile my kernel, but I have no clue what kinds of options to turn on. Would you mind sharing the kernel-config file you used with me?
