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.

Because I want to record some audio off a DVD in my DVD drive (and have never done any audio recording before using any device), I read up on how to connect the DVD drive to onboard sound or a sound card, and found out I have to connect a cable from the audio port on the DVD drive to the matching connector on the motherboard or sound card. (I thought I needed a sound card, but maybe not. Some sources say my onboard sound might be good enough and I should try it first.)
Now I discovered that my DVD drive has no audio ports at all, nothing but a SATA port and power cable port. (Which seems odd, because my CD drive, which is ten years older, has analog and digital audio ports.) So...that means I'm stuck for recording audio from this DVD drive, doesn't it? I suppose I could try to hook up my dedicated DVD player to the computer...
