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 have Mandrake 9.1 and a Sound Blaster PCI 128.
Everything was working fine until the day i've installed wineX 3.1.
I've installed it. But to make halfe life to work i chmoded 777 nvidia0 and nvidiactl. then i played Counterstrike. It was working very well.
Then i dont know why, but to shutdown my computer i loged out, then i connect me back in failsafe. I typed "shutdown". It didnt worked so i pass in root. Then i typed "halt".
After that. When i wanted to boot back on linux, the nvidia0 et nvidiactl had desapeared. I had to install a new time the nvidia driver (and this time i just chmod it 555). Then video was working again, but the sound had desapeared two.
The sound in "Tux Racer" and in the test sound button of the KDE configuration panel too. In Realplayer it works. But, it doesnt works at the KDE startup nor in half life(still with wineX) .
I checked the sound configuration in draksound. But nothing change.
If i select a random driver for my soundcard, the sound initialisation fails (of course). Then i change it in draksound. I log out and log back and the sound works. But if i reboot. The sound desapears again.
I can't understand anything nor the nvidia nor the sound desapearence.
