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.

Hello everyone, first time posting here. I installed Red Hat 8.0 last week and I also have obtained the XMMS plugin needed for mp3s to work, but whenever I minimize or maximize a program by clicking on it in the panel, there is a pause in my music (this problem resembles the Windows problem when too many programs are running.) The funny thing is that when I click on a program in the panel when XMMS is running, my CPU spikes.
After this little pause when pulling up a program, the music continues to play with no pauses until I click on something else to maximize or minimize it.
Red Hat 8.0 has quite a few bugs in it (from what I hear). I have not used it myself becuase they are now starting to incorporate Non-GPL'ed software into their OS and that is not what Linux is about. I use Mandrake 9.0 and XMMS runs like a charm.
