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.

This design incorporates a speaker, however I don't see how I could get any sound out of it.
From what I learned on the IBM website, is that this speaker is part of some sort of 'clicker' system, for audible feedback of the keystrokes.
I'd like to know if anyone has some experience with this, maybe someone even accessed that speaker to get some custom sounds out of it (not just clicks).
Activating the clicker function would be great as a first step though...
Are you sure it is actually in there? My 1993 Model M (13914010) has the place for the speaker, but there isn't one in there. To my knowledge the only ones that actually had speakers were for the XT's or terminals.
Wow, that is pretty odd to have a speaker in a PS/2 board, out of the 20 or so that have passed through my hands, I have never seen a single one. The only control I have ever heard of was back on the XT's you could turn the click on or off with some special software, I doubt you could ever get any useful sound out of it.
