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 chatted with Pat Verner, dude at Pmagic.
He says Pmagic has no sound at all...
I thought it should, as they have a flash module for it, just no
It says in pmagic docs that it's based on slack 12.2 and you can
add slack pkgs to the pmodules folder and it will "install"
them during boot.
So, I downloaded slack pkgs; alsaoss, esound daemon and libao
and it did in fact install them at boot!
However, still couldn't get it working
I believe, as you say, I need to have it in the kernel?
If so, I would have to recompile it?
however, i don't know where to start...?
Is it easier/better to recompile pmagic's kernel or compile a new kernel?
This is not my forte, so any good ref's not on google would help too.
I have never attempted to compile/re-compile a kernel
so it's like starting over.
If PartedMagic is Slackware based, then you can probably just compile a new kernel on a Slackware box and create installable packages.
I do this for my laptop, since it is very old: compile the kernel to my laptop's specs on my desktop, then create a kernel package with the makepkg command.
Check the /boot directory of PartedMagic for the kernel config file. Copy it over to the kernel source directory and change it's name to .config
Then just run make xconfig and activate sound support and any other goodies.
