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'm developing an MP3 manager (actually it will manage movies and images too). Its almost ready for its first beta release. Should be done in about another month. It will allow you to search through your MP3s, manage multiple directories with it, and eventually be able to edit the ID3 tags for better searching and organizing. keep an eye on lucien.sourceforge.net for (and the subsequent project page) for updates.
Linux magazine 22 (july/august 2002):
"Bring order to your music files"
They talk about a program KDiskCat:
"A tool like KDiskCat is of great help if it has a good search function, because it's very easy to lose tracks of an extensive MP3 collection"
I haven't tried it because I don't use KDE
I hope this is what you need http://devel-home.kde.org/~kdiskcat/
edit: just noticed you're using SuSE, it should be inluded.
I do, but in its present state it won't compile. It was all just about done and ready for release then I decided I didn't like the way alot of the functions were spread out across files and so on. So its currently undergoing a rewrite.
All, its 11:00 pm EST and I'm staring down an early appointment to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. To try to get my mind off the horror (and working through the terrific effects of some great pain medication) I decided to finish cleaning up the code for Lucien. Looking at it now, the user preferences interface still needs some working and code needs to be implemented to save / load user preferences at shutdown / startup. But other than that she's pretty ready for a beta release. JStew, I could definately use some help especially if you have experience with doint this sort of thing before. In other words, I have no idea how to us automake, etc to create all the usual configuration / installation files. but anyway, I digress... communication can probably be handled through the sourceforge page, just do a search at sourceforge for lucien and you should come across it. After my teeth are removed tomorrow and I've come back to my senses... should be sometime later this week or early next week, I'll be posting files and tending to the administration aspect of this project. Also, if anyone would like to download it and try it out I'd love to hear suggestions about how to better the interface and on how to make the app better (ie what features people would like to see). Anyway, I'm getting long winded, enjoy your time with your teeth and I'll see everyone later, if I don't die under the drill, or the pliers, or the meat grinder, or whatever it is those dentists use after they put you to sleep. later all.
