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.

Maybe this is more along the lines of a newbie question, mods can move the thread if needed I guess.
Simple question about xmms. I'm using xmms 1.2.8 with KDE 3.1.4 on a RedHat9 system (linux kernel 2.4.22 if you care). When I open konqueror and browse my files and click on my first music file, everything is what I would call normal.
I can then drag and drop more music files into the playlist and everything is just fine. No problem hearing the music.
The problem I'm having is that when I click a new song out of the konqueror browser, it will apparently try to spawn a new xmms session. My mouse turns to an hourglass and there's an xmms task in the taskbar. This doesn't affect how the song plays though. Everything still plays just fine. (And yes I've tried chaning the file type and putting "xmms -e %F" and it didnt' help. In fact, -e is even more annoying. It just adds the song to the end of the play list rather than starting it right away but I still get the hourglass and taskbar thing.)
So is there something I'm missing? A command switch that prevent xmms from trying to spawn another session? (If that's even what is happening.)
Instead of open the files from the konqueror, open the xmms and open the files of music u wanna hear from it. At this way it shall not do the thing of open another xmms. How just are newbie just intall linux one day ago, not know how solve the problen u have of what open it from the konqueror.
