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 just installed ALSA via apt-get and ran alas-conf but there is no sound. It detected the card fine (it's a creative audigy 2) and made a popping noise over the speakers while running alsa-conf. it looks like it's playing sound, but i hear nothing... no error or anything.
Please do some searching in this forum before posting these questions. Almost the same question was posted a few days ago (it is actually still on the first topics-page). Check this topic and especially 'Dead Parrot's answer: Sound won't work in Sarge
i did search, if you read the post you're referencing you'd see that he had a 2.4 kernel, an error message, and ALSA not installed. i'm already running 2.6, I installed ALSA, have no error message, and checked the mute setting in alsa-mixer first. so this is what i like to call "a different problem."
