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.

Why in the heck does kde even include it in the package......Ive have redhat 9 , suse 7.3, and vector 3.2, and neither NOATUN nor KABOODLE work in any of them ............Ive dowloaded all the friggin
plugins.......ive recompiled them both ........ive changed the broken desktop links.......I can get one to play a mp3 but it wont play movies or any other file......I can get the other to play a movie but it wont play mp3 or any thing else .......IM through with it ........
PS. Im not asking for help or any advice...........just venting.......
so if your reading this thanks for just being there to listen.....
I totally agree! I have tried to get those to work with Red Hat 7.3, 8.0, and Mandrake (I think) and have been completely unsuccessful. I thought it was just me, my built-in sound card. and older video card.
I've tried to get away from Windows and run only in Linux, but for real games, watching movies, and for Winamp's visualizations I have to reboot.
<deep sigh> .... don't mind me, I'm just venting too.
Why even use Noatun? I'm a big KDE fan, but Noatun sucks. As does Kaboodle. Replace them with XMMS with the aRTs plugin, then get MPlayer with the win32 codecs for all your movie needs. XMMS has a couple of it's own visualisations, and with MPlayer you should never need to boot that other OS for almost any movie clip.
noatun isn't very good (except for playing music).
but do you really care? do you need another useless media player able to badly play everything and to consume half of your ressource to play a single 3 sec movie?
Get Mplayer for your movie it is the BEST movie player ever made no matter the plateform (mplayer team really really ROCKS).
