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 have used distros like redhat and mandrake before where you could use apt-get to install software like mplayer from the web, but i am not sure if that works on suse.
as far as DVD playing goes , they include kaffeine that does not play dvd's.
for all the hype about Suse being the next best thing to XP , i hardly see how when it is not clearly eveident to enable simple things such as this.
but if anyone has a known source where they were able to get a package that succesfully enabled them to play DVD's and movie trailers off the web in the more popular formats such as quicktime, wmv i would be thankful if they could point me in that direction,
