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.

doubt it (though I don't know about getting them from apt). all you gotta do (for xine based players) is grab that codec package, make a directory called /usr/lib/win32, and extract the contents of the codecs inside the codec package into the /usr/lib/win32 directory. From there, xine will pick it up.
Follow the instructions then
apt-get update && apt-get install w32codecs
It's that easy.
In the future, if something you're looking for isn't in the standard debian repositories - visit www.apt-get.org and search there. Often the package is hosted somewhere and it's as easy as adding a new line to /etc/apt/souces.list, apt-get update and then apt-get install <package-name>
