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.

1. Is there anyway to minimize XMMS into the system tray, like the clipboard does for instance?
2. I can't seem to install skins. I installed XMMS off of a mandrake CD so I don't know where the directory is. I tried searching for xmms and skin but both results turned up empty. Where did it install or how can I find it??
You are welcome. I'm glad it worked!. hmmm, to see hidden folders, do:
all folders listed in there that starts with a dot are hidden. It's good, because they are most likely configurations files, so when you do an "ls" only, you won't see them, keeping a cleaner list . Anyway, don't rename them. If you do, your applications will either stop working or remaking those directories again use always ls -a and you will be alright
Sorry to come back, but I've found something on google for you. It's a plugin to use xmms as system tray for either gnome or kde. I dunno if it works or how to install it, but take a look if you really want to have system tray support for it:
I have a problem with XMMS...
When I turn the volume to 100% it freezes the XMMS...
If I "kill" (via system guard) and try to restart it then there is just no sound...
aRts just displays something like can't find teh device etc. etc...
Only re-booting helps me get out of this...
Is there any solution? (beside to watch not to turn volume to 100%)
BTW Fonts which XMMS use in Mandrake 9.2 (with KDE) distribution must be grabbed from some ftp and reinstaled because something is wrong with them, so XMMS don't display song lists... same problem, with GNU Cash, which even don't want to start... The fonts that work as it is mentioned to be can be found at the GIMP under Adobe fonts section...
