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.

can you explain in more depth what you were trying to do? do you have aRts installed(it's spelled arts, I'm not sure about the whole capitalization thing). Also, make sure there is a /dev/dsp, if it's not there, that would make sense that it can't open it. How familliar are you with the command line?
do you have arts installed? That is the sound system(no speakers necesarilly, kind of like a daemon I guess, I don't fully understand what arts does). I'm assuming you're running KDE(correct me if I'm wrong, because you may not need it then).
