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 feel I am obligated to correct you. Obtaining an MP3 codec is in not indicative of "cracking, piracy, warez, fraud" etc. Playing an MP3 does not violate a copyright. Furthermore compatibility with the GPL in the Fedora license does not prohibit users from installing non-GPL (or for that matter any) software in Fedora. It only applies to what software RH/Fedora will choose to RE-distribute.
Many people have asked how to enable mp3 codecs on LQ, run a search. Respectfully I beleive your answer was somewhat unclear if not misleading.
Btw: I should point out that you do have FC in your list of distributions you use.
thanx for noticing... yes i ran FC, and RH, but no, i do not use them. I like to test distros, it does not follow that i like to run all the distros i test.
In the case of your response, which i will take as valid, and thereby drop the subject of legality behind this issue, I will respond to the original thread by suggesting the user add livna.org to their yum list, and you should be able to find a package xmms-mp3 to resolve this issue.
