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.

The sound used to work, and then I had a problem with glibc which is discussed in another thread.
Now if I type sndconfig at the prompt it sets up the sound, and gets to the part where it plays the file of Linus pronouncing Linux. But it doesn't play the file, it used to before the problems with glibc, but it won't now.
If I do Sound & Video>Volume Control and adjust the volume it still doesn't work, but when I try sndconfig after using the Volume Control it says it can't open /dev/audio.
According to sndconfig my sound card is a "Crystal CS423x sound chip".
I'm not sure what files to look in for sound configuration, but the seemingly relevant parts of /etc/modules.conf are below.
check to make sure that all of the modules that are needed by cs4232 are loaded with lsmod. you can see if they are by referencing the /lib/modules/2.4.??/modules.dep. give that a go, if not then drop back a line so that we may help out.
ok, i'll see if i can remember things in rh. i use mdk so it's about the same.
if your using kde go to the configuration, kde, sound and look through the options. you might be on auto and some times it doesn't do the best job of detecting. i would switch it to either advanced linux sound architecture or threaded open sound system.
