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.

I've heard many different methods on how to play audio CDs in the text interface. The most common command is "cdplay." Yet, none of these commands actually work in my text shell. Anyone know the actual command(s)?
Also, how do I enable "standby mode" in slackware lin kernal 2.4.29? (do I need that linux APM?)
I was mistaken, the program is called mpg123, and I think it was included in my install. From a console try typing mp and then hit tab a couple of times and see what comes up. Keep in mind, this may not even work at all.
