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.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

If you know the commands that need to be entered, then you can make a script. At its easiest, a script file can be considered to be like the dos .BAT file. There are a few differences:
command --parameter will run the command. command --parameter & will run the command and get onto the next one before this finished. Possibly less useful than: command --parameter && will run the command and not run the next until this has finished.
So, for example, you could have a script that looks like this:
command1 --parameter && command2 --parameter.
It really can be as simple as that.
Oh yeah, once you've written the script, you must make it executable:
chmod +x myscript
That should be it done. You run it as you would any normal script (don't forget to put a ./ if you're running it from the current directory).
well i do't think it's so much a problem as "the way it is". i'd guess that you're not using esd tho, i *think* the esd sound server does allow for multiple inputs and such, but i've not used it. linux sound is not the most amzing thing in the world quite yet.
Well, actually, it plays now, but i cant like receive an IM and hear it if Im listening to music....
Another thing... I cant play tuxracer due to my GeForce2 MX 400 not being detected correctly... something about GLX... I went to NVIDIA's site and got the kernel and the GLX>... but still doesnt werrk...

OK, for the NVidia stuff, here's one I made earlier (thread about installing NVidia stuff). A note though, since this thread it has become apparent that you'll need to: rpm -Uvh something.rpm --force to get it to work.
