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.

When I recently installed some updates to my Fedora 8 installation I was no longer able to play music CDs. I get sounds from music and videos played on the web, and all normal computer sounds such as "you have mail", etc, but nothing from music CDs. When I tried to play a CD the player gave me mount and permissions error. I serched this and other forums and was led to make some additions to /etc/fstab and change the permissions for my CD-RW drive (/dev/scd0) and my DVD-RW drive (/dev/scd1) to 777. Now KsCD plays the tracks and picks up all the CDDB info from the CDs but there is no sound.
just curious, did you open up your box and see the cord that connects the CD-ROM Drive and motherboard (sound card) still connected? If it is still connected, what software are you using to place CD music? Are you using optical sound?
Fedora 8 is using a whole new audio mixer, probably you hear that before, but what can happen is that this mixer is closing input channels. So was my mic in closed and needed to be opened. It is possible that for some reason your audio input was closed if that is for some reason a channel on your audio card.
I wasn't aware of the new mixer. Can you tell me how to check to see if a channel is closed?
In Fedora 8, the sound is normally controlled by PulseAudio. The following link is about how to setup the PulseAudio. It also includes links about some graphical interface, if you did not install them.
