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 have used URPMI to install all of the win32 codecs so that Kaffeine could play my .wmv files, and they all seem to have worked. It plays my .avi files and everything, but my .wmv files still don't play except for the audio. I'm running Mandriva 2005 LE, any suggestions?
Awesome, I got the DVDs to work, I installed libdvdcss. The .wmv files only played once though, after I installed xine-win32, but every time I install that it just bugs out Kaffeine and I have to manually just turn the computer off. Is the "jpackage" part necessary on URPMI? I'm kind of confused, I love to watch videos on ebaumsworld, and they don't work now, lol.
Problem solved. Apparently there was just some instability problem with my version of kaffeine because at times it wouldn't let me pan through the timeline or interact with any of the buttons, but the movie would still play. All I did was uninstall kaffeine and install mplayer, which is prettier might I add, and everything works perfect, including my web content.
