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 am running RH9, so I will run a search for Xine and Mplayer.
Edit - Seems both Mplayer and Xine are in legal troubles. Stupid software patent BS. Anyway, I can't make heads or tails of Xine or Mplayer. Just give me an all in one RPM package for RH9. None of this DL this, then this, this, and this one too, crap.
