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.

My motherboard has a built in sound chip with 7.1 surround and a six jack I/O block. It uses the snd-hda-intel module and shows up as Realtek ALC883. It works just fine as is. But since I don't have a surround system on my PC, I have a question.
Can I change the way the I/O works?
On the widows side of my box, the software lets me configure the 6 jacks as I see fit. Basically turning them into a patch bay. The setup I use there is a follows.
1 Mono In (Mic)
2 Stereo In (Line from TV card)
3 Stereo In (Stream capture from 5)
4 Stereo Out (PC Speakers)
5 Stereo Out (Stream to 3)
6 Stereo Out (Wireless to Stereo in another room)
As you can see, this is quite useful. Is there a way to do this with Linux?? I have been using Linux for a long time, but can't seem to figure this one out. I have played around a little with JACK Audio, but can't seem to get it to work without screwing something else up. Is there a way to set this in the module? Or is there an easier way to do it I just don't know about??
