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.

Is there a way to play real audio files in Linux? I tried downloading the old Real Player 8 for linux, but it just won't install. It's strange - I downloaded the file, and when I try to install it, either through the software manager GUI or through command line with urpmi, it tells me the rpm file doesn't exist (though i can move the file, copy the file, etc).
If you go to easyurpmi and configure yourself some good download sources, you can add plf and contrib mirrors to the list, and you can get mplayer with those codecs already included in the download. It sves a source compile (and there are tons of kewl stuff there as well). Good luck with it too.
