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 recently Googled something that suggest I needed to upgrade to a 2.6.20 kernel to get the motherboard sound to work, but I'm not willing to do that (I don't care that much - it just seems like there's a simpler solution).
Any idea how I can get the onboard sound to work with the standard 10.0 SUSE distribution, running on a POS Compaq PC without a separate sound card, but apparently has the above-mentioned sound hardware? I know the sound worked when I recently bought the PC with Windows XP on it, so the hardware should be find (same cables, speakers, connection, etc.). This seems like a config and/or driver issue...
Are you sure it's not working with the stock snd-hda-intel module? Try to load it into the kernel and see if it works
There is no need to upgrade your kernel, if you don't want to, you can just upgrade alsa.
