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.

The Jem Report is easier to follow and doesn't require apt. It will show you how, USING YAST, to install all the codecs and players you need to play DVDs, VCDs, mp3s, divx, xvid...etc. I highly recommend it, more than going for a seperate installer which is highly unnecessary. Keep it easy.

I went through this Jem report and here:
"Click the Add button, then click on HTTP in the popup menu. Add the following Internet address to the Server Name field and then click on OK:
Changing 10.0 to 9.3 (the URL is there, I checked it), but then it goes wrong:
"Unable to create installation source from URL 'http://packman.rsync.zmi.at/suse/9.3/'.
And then it asks if I want to try again.
The above message may not be exactly that way because I translated it from my language, so you guys could understand it.
I quite didn't understand it, I'll try googling, but I'd really appreciate any help with that
