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.

Here's the deal: I've got a collection of MP3s that I encoded back in Windows. Over time I tried different encoders to make the MP3s (MP3Workshop and Musimatch to name just two). So I have a mix of encoder styles. Some of the files are "free bitrate" format, and mpg123 complains about that. Some are interpreted incorrectly (i.e. a 4MB file is said to last only 12 seconds), and some are considered corrupt (i.e. mpg123 gets a segmentation fault when it tries to play the file).
I'm looking for some piece of software (or group of utilities) that will:
1.Analyze the MP3s and report any errors detected
2. Offer to correct those errors it feels it can fix
3. Normalize the volume throughout the collection
I was hoping someone here might know of something they have used. I searched on sourceforge and freshmeat and there was a horde of audio editing programs, but most of them seemed to be geared for the hardcore audiophile. I did come across "normalize" which satisfies #3, but the priority is to fix the MP3s first.
