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 installed FC 2 with Kernel 2.6.8-1.358. First time getting experience with FC 2 was surprising me. It's very cool. But the problem began when I tried to play XMMS, RealPlayer, Noatun, there is no sound output. (no problem in Redhat 7.3)
This is the result of /sbin/lspci in my shell console:

In KDE, i can get sound from XMMS if output-plugin configuration is switched to arRts Output 0.6.0, but the sound quality is very bad. Other drivers (Alsa 1.2.10, eSound and OSS 1.2.10) have not worked.
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
Your welcome. Looks as if all the modules are loaded. If you are able to get sound from xmms, then this is most likely a mixer problem. I'd try some different mixer settings, and see what you come up with.
