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 not found one that streams rm files, but if you don't mind downloading them first, I would recommend xine, with a realplayer codec. If the file is named *.rm, then save it, and use less to see where it points to (less filename.rm should just give you an internet address). Download it and play.
And I think you're right to not want to install realplayer. Just don't, it's nowhere near worth the hassle.
I have Mplayer and Realplayer installed. Realplayer is installed as a mozilla plugin. Realplayer is not too good at picking up and playing within the browser. I have not tested it recently tho and I have have a alot of changes to the overall system. I will check more into this whn I get the chance. I did read that mplayer could be configged as a plugin too. Has anyone tried this and know if this works well?
 realplayer does work sometimes so i guess it may be a codec issue - Mplayer plays nearly all of my movies so configguing it as a plugin over the realp software might actually be a good idea eh.
