    If you are interested in loading music and files,structures into a database and maybe atatch a webbinterface to it, iv already have written a program for that, its availble for everybody at my site http://www.utterberg.com under download and are called dbloader. It workes on both linux and microsoft platforms. It just needs perl to be installed.

    Its easy to understand and are fast to implement. If you want to learn more about programming.

    I know Gnome desktop are based on GTK which is a GUI toolkit for C and C++ programmers. So you can try that if you want. OpenGL is another GUI api for c programming. Check them out.

    the book "gnome/gtk+ programming bible" is a very good book. I recomend that!

    There is also the (free) tutorial on gtk.org. I recommend that.
