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.

im looking to try a new mp3 player, just to play the field. im particularly looking for something with a media library like music match has. i dont want any mmjb for linux recommendations, it uses wine and it's very slow. id like a linux native app. what do you guys/gurus use? oh... and ladies also.
Well I use mp3blaster, it's console, but not command line. It uses ncurses to display a nice command gui. Very fast, and good. There is also freeamp which, from it's name I deduce (pretty good of me ) is a winamp clone. If you are truly a bad dude, you could give mpg123 a try.
I'm tired of need to use the mouse to hear my mp3s, so i switched to console based players.
Currently i'm using cplay, "a curses front end for various audio players"
fast, logical key mappings (at least to me), can read-write playlist, a pleasure to use,
only missing the ability to read id3 tags:
Just to let you know, FreeAmp has now changed names (don't ask why) and is now called Zinf (Zinf Is Not [b]F]/b]reeamp). Oh, and I read somewhere (could probably find it on Goggle) about an 'app' that lets you play music on a remote machine, by way of an 'internet interface' (php based browser menu system, to you and I). Just thought I'd drop that in aswell.
AFAIK, Nope. I tried Linux-WA3b a while ago and it worked (sort of) without anything to do with Wine on the machine. However, I found that the Win-WA3b ran much better (under Wine) than the Linux-WA3b version did (at the time).
