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 am a Newbie running Ubuntu 9.04. I have no problems with the sound card, however, when I connect a PD552 USB sound adapter into a 4 port hub in order to use headphones it simply doesn't work. I posted the problem on the Ubuntu site and received a suggestion to run lsusb from a terminal. I did this but never received any other replies addressing the issue.
This is what I receive from the command. It shows up as device 7 but I have no idea of what my next steps are to insure it will work.
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Try plugging it in directly (not into the hub)
Try plugging it into a powered hub.
Take a look at the output of lsusb -v (Please don't post it all here). How much current does your audio headset want to take?
I had to upgrade to 1.0.20 to get my USB sound card to work, currently using 1.0.20-git20090509. I'm not exactly sure how best to do this in Ubuntu I suggest you try google, it might be as simple as adding a new source to apt or something. Otherwise it can be done from source.
