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.

Not looking for a how to, just some general advice. Do you think it is worth trying to install? I don't even dislike XMMS, just brand loyality I guess. Maybe I'll wait till they port the NullSoft Installer to linux too? (I probably couldn't get it to run if they did )
Try Xmms, Plus xmms supports winmap skins
Jus hop ova too winmap.com and download any skin with
the .wsz format... and the zip format. When you download a skin jus put
it in ur /home/user/.xmms/Skin ------- folder
Ma xmms config file for xmms
skin=/home/navaboy/.xmms/Skins/Aluminum Alloy - Cryogenic.wsz <----
This skin is frem the winamp.com site.
Yeah, it's an RPM, the packages it asked for were taken right from the KDE Package manager.
It does seem the the packages are standard, I even installed the developers packages to make sure I wouldn't have to later. I thought maybe it was having a problem detecting the packages on this distribution.
I was not able to find Winamp for linux at thier offical site, but here are a couple links that had it:
yeah... i miss winamp too... what i really miss about it is the media library.... i can live with xmms but my girlfriend (who gets lost if i even use different icon themes) misses it more.... so i just keep all my mp3s in the playlist to make life easier for her... of course there's madman... but its not the same.... not mentioning the desktop cluttering... otherwise xmms has it all, skins... (including freeform skins), output plugins etc visualisations... but i still miss winamp visualisation studio... it just rulez....
anyways... win some, lose some... at least untill nullsoft comes out with winamp 5 for linux... wonder when that will be... soon i pray... if it ever happens... i tried the winamp for linux alpha... or beta... dunno... but it never did work for me...
really, my only complaint with xmms is that when you go to add a file to the playlist, the window that pops up just isn't very nice. you have to click on the /.. to move up a directory, there's no up or back arrow. the damn window is always too small, i have to resize it every single time (and it never remembers). and last, but most importantly, when you move up a directory it always goes back to the beginning of that directory. my /mp3 directory has like 60 subdirectories, and it sucks to enter, say, RollingStones and pick a song, only to hit /.. and end up back at /Abba or whatever. i hate having to scroll through everything all over again. anyway, that said, i love xmms and i've never had any trouble with it.
