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 need to maintain a a backlog of a radio station's audio for a period of 90 days. Previously, I have been using RealProducer on a Windows machine. I got tired of the Windows machine crashing so I have upgraded the system to Red Hat 9 and am using SOX and LAME to encoder audio in real time to MP3. The encoding is working but I want to be able to use the highest compression rate available since quality is not that important.
I have tried encoding at a bit rate of 8k but when I play back the file, it plays very quickly. I have tried using several MP3 players but they all play the files too quickly. Here is the command I am using to do the encoding:
I really can't encode at a bit rate greater than 8 k because I would run out of space. With the settings above, the size of file is comparable to a RealAudio file at 8k but the RealAudio files sounds better IMHO. Do you have any experience with OGG files? I wonder if they would be better for audio archival purposes.
