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 ditched Fedora Core 1 in favour of Debian Sarge just today and I'm totally new to Debian.
There seems to be no way to configure sound manually though. I have tried to find a way but there seems to be no GUI or command line sound configuration tool. Can somebody please help me find a way to detect sound hardware?
If I remember correctly, you're going to need to make sure you have the proper drivers installed from the nvidia website. Once they're installed, you should be able to use the modconf program to insert them. Also, make sure your users is part of the audio group so you have perms to use the sound card.
modprobe i810_audio works apparently. It doesn't give any errors. Now how to make sure that the module is auto-loaded on startup?
Also I'm running kernel 2.4.27 and I cannot find the sources for the kernel (to use make menuconfig) in the Synaptic package manager.
How do I install the kernel sources (to configure the kernel)? Thanks.
I am unable to install kernel sources using apt-get. Can somebody help. I get this error message:
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package kernel-source-2.4.27 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package kernel-source-2.4.27 has no installation candidate
