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 run win2000, and am dual booting between w2k and redhat.
After installing rh 7.0, I expand the alsa packages, then
./configure --with-cards=ymfpci --with-isapnp=yes
I then add the following lines to /etc/modules.conf
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1
alias snd-card-0 snd-card-ymfpci
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
After rebooting, sound continues to work, but after I boot into win2k
then back into linux the sound is broken. I know one solution, don't
use win2k, but I have to for work stuff. After sound gets broken,
when I boot into Linux, I get the message:
Jan 18 11:38:39 satpro rc.sysinit: Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode: succeeded
Jan 18 11:38:40 satpro rc.sysinit: Finding module dependencies: succeeded

Jan 18 11:38:40 satpro modprobe: /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/snd-card-ymfpci.o: insmod snd-card-0 failed
So I've read thru the isapnptools docs, and realize at that point I'm
over my head, I don't understand linux well enough to thoroughly
check the resource usage and then configure my modules accordingly.
Any pointers about how to go about getting the sound problem fixed?
I'm well versed with windows, and do some c++ programming in
the windows environment for work, but in starting to learn linux
I've quickly gotten bogged down. I've downloaded what I can on linux,
and am reading it slowly, but I haven't gotten to anything that
really helps with system resource problems. Any good docs for a newbie regarding resource usage and configuring?
