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'm getting very, very confused....maybe its my age! but I don't think that I've had any suggestion that will achieve this move.....have I?

Most likely your current working directory in the terminal and the location of the file are not the same. Where did you save it to? Use the full path of the file.
sudo mv /path/to/soundcard-on /usr/local/sbin

Save the script as a text file named alsa-info.sh and do
Don't use sudo. It automatically uploads the info and gives you a link.
Nothing seems to go to plan!
I've copied and pasted th script into a leafpad document, saved it to my desktop and when asked to create and name a folder for it, used the same name......it saved to Desktop, doesn't look like a folder icon though, anyway, I opened a termonal and this is the response:- ~ $ sh ./alsa-info.sh
sh: Can't open ./alsa-info.sh
