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.

After a year of contemplating it. Last night i finally did it and zapped bills wonder system and put on Mandrake 8.2.
Its went on really nivce, i have a KDE desktop and my internet seems to be going at about 6 times the speed of light since I changed over which suits me fine.
I have no sound at all.
I have a HOT687V spacewalker monterhboard with on board sound, and it is Fortemedia FM801 sound drivers that I would normally use for it.
I have done some rumaging about and I checked all the mixers and none of them are muted as far as I can see. I checked and it knows what drivers it should be using, cuase I seen it listed, but what I did notice somewhere, dont know where tho - and please forgive me for my Linux inexperience.
Its says that only under root??
Now I dont know if that means it will work if I do something else or perhaps I just need to get a new soundcard.
I used to copernic form my searches so Im not sure if htere is anything as good for Linux yet.
can someone please help in the quest to get some toones back on my computer
