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.

a) winamp looks and works much better that xmms !
b) winamp can play many more file types than xmms.
the main thing that made me want winamp is tonight i tryied watching a film rip which i keep on my server (along with many more things ) and i couldn watch it because i didn have a player that played avi's ! it wasnt anything against xmms juss the standard players in general.
Originally posted by mrgrieves I see you're using redhat. Did you get the rpm packages for Xine? If so, it should install flawlessly. Same with Mplayer(which is superior to xine).
RH is my server, im using fedora 2 because i was sick of windows and wanted something a little better looking than RH9 but i wanted to stick to RH not change to e.g. suse (which i tried and found it b*ll*x! because i really dislike KDE and i couldn work out how to switch to winamp )
but i got the source because i didn know i could get an rpm for it. where can i get a rpm for xine or Mplayer, which ever is better
