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.

Hello. I am a newbie. I installed redhat 8 and just installed redhat 9 in the hope it would help. I have an SIS sound card that came with my Sony Vaio and a PCI audiophile 2496. I downloaded the Alsa driver but honestly, I need to start from gound zero. soundconfig only recognizes the SIS card. My distro is 2.4.20-8. And lspci is:

I see it in there but don't know where to begin. Please help. I am getting close to giving in and going back to Windows.
don't have a lot of time, but hope this helps.
i've never had my card autodetected by any distro (i have an audiophile as well). You'll probably have to play around w/ your alsa config files. You need to be using the ice1712 chipset (check the alsa web site for details on installing it, it shouldn't be hard) maybe even try a modprobe ice1712 and see what happens=). assuming that works, use envy24control (in alsa-tools?) as a mixer. good luck!
