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 have an odd problem with sound in Deb Lenny. The sound works for all apps I have tested, but the volume is so low that it's barely audible. I have adjusted levels in kmix (I'm using KDE), but this doesn't help much. It seems that a lot of the sliders and switches are missing from kmix, as compared to Fedora 8, which also runs PCM sound.
I'm running a Toshiba A100 laptop with built-in Intel sound. from /proc/modules, I think these are the relevant drivers:
d00k:/proc# cat modules | grep snd
snd_hda_intel 239160 5 - Live 0xf8ac1000
snd_pcm_oss 39200 0 - Live 0xf8a72000
snd_mixer_oss 15424 1 snd_pcm_oss, Live 0xf8a14000
snd_pcm 72324 3 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss, Live 0xf8a5f000
snd_timer 21028 2 snd_pcm, Live 0xf8a1d000
snd 48324 13 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer, Live 0xf8a24000
soundcore 7520 1 snd, Live 0xf8a11000
snd_page_alloc 10056 2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm, Live 0xf89c0000
I would graciously appreciate any enlightment that might be shed on this odd problem. Maybe I'm just "doing something dum", but I haven't been able to find it yet.
