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.

I have a Dell Dimension 8250.. I recently (tonight) installed RH on it. I've never ran into this problem before, so I would like any input anyone may have.
I read somewhere that Linux won't pick up hardware that shares the same irq as any CPU bus. However, my Video card is on a shared IRQ, and it works fine. However, my sound card doesn't. The detector detects it as being made by Creative Labs (It's an SBLive!), but it doesn't recognize any furhter information.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you can help me with this problem. Thank you.
P.S. And yes, I've spent the last three hours reading =)
Dell ships a card with the Dimension line called the "SoundBlaster Live 5.1" (CT0200) which doesn't work with this (or any other) Linux driver. If you are ordering a Dell, tell them you are using Linux and they should be able to sell you another SoundBlaster which will work.
I, after dealing with Dell regarding Inspiron Linux issues, asked them to insure that the equipment met their "Linux specifications" (as you can get RedHat installed on some of their systems). They told me that the SoundBlaster Live SB0200 would work and that only the CT models didn't work. The ignorant person that I seem to be--believed them. Well, doesn't work. According to what I've found on the web, SB and CT are the SAME THING. I pulled it out and am just using the integrated Intel 810 sound and it works fine (past that it is only porting audio to the front, but that's another post!)
Can you please tell me what settings you used in the Suse sound setup? (Such as ext-out / ext-in / other settings in advanced settings???) My Suse 8.2 installation with a Dell SBLive detects and installs the card, but nothing will produce sound.
