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've been burning a lot of coasters trying to burn a 700MB avi file to SVCD or VCD.... I know how to use vcdimager and cdrdao, its getting the avi to a usable mpeg file that's the problem.... Is there a good howto, guide, or software (non-kde, not avidemux) to help me out here?
I don't want to use avidemux... and I'm looking for a really thorough guide, covering everything from aspect ratios to pal/ntsc to vbr/cbr to limiting the size, or shrinking m2v/mpa to one condensed mpg, etc....
I've managed to mess up quite a few vcds using mencvcd, mencoder, mplex, transcode, you name it.... I cannot get my movie, which is widescreen, to NOT be stretched into 4:3.... i want the black bars on top & bottom, not a vertically stretched film....
I read through the link you posted, and several others, not a single one mentions how to do this... I have no interest in watching a 2.24:1 aspect ratio stretched to 4:3, a waste if you ask me.
Check out dvd::rip -- it probably does what you need. Since you've been playing with this stuff, know what the easiest way to split a DVD9 to 2 DVD5s is? I really don't want to get too deeply into writing XML files and menus etc for dvdauthor - I just want it to work
actually, I'm trying to re-encode a divx file I once made using xp (*.avi) back to vcd format in linux... I originally took it from a vhs tape, since afaik it was never released on any other video format....
Pink Floyd - Live in Pompeii..... still have the vhs, but I'd rather not add a vcr to my entertainment system
I don't remember the software, it was just some basic video capture stuff.... and I used a rca->svideo adaptor into the svideo input on my GeForce FX 5600 256MB (BFG Asylum card)... it has a jack on the back between the vga & dvi outs, which looks like s-video but isn't... a special 4-port adapter actually plugs into that jack that has svid out/in on it.... however I also hear that those $40 media capture boxes as Best Buy are decent, and come with software to do the job.
