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.

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.

It sounds like you need the mplayer gui. If you originally installed it as an rpm you can just get the mplayer-gui rpm and install that, it's quite easy. Another thing you might want is the mplayer-fonts and mplayer-skins. The skins are are really quite good.

I've done it. Thanks to all those who helped me in times of need. Now I have a new Problem. I've been trying to play a dvd. I've mounted the mnt/cdrom but when I go to the option Open DVD disk it states the following error. "Couldn't open DVD device /dev/dvd/" Can someone tell me how to fix that?
If you use KDE as your desktop you can integrate mplayer fully by installing kmplayer. This is a front-end for mplayer which uses all the KDE-style menus and dialog boxes. It also puts a narrow row of controls along the bottom of the picture, very useful in full-screen mode watching DVDs.
