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 have been having the following problem with both debian and ubuntu.
for some reason, as far as i am aware, only one program can play audio at any one time. for example if i am on a website which is playing sound, and then i open up zinf to play some other music, it wont work. and so on...
add this to what you have and see if it works better
#possibly this as well at the bottom (not sure about this one)?
# and possibly this
i think there is an extra chip kind of in the way on that board and its specs are not public
if all else fails possibly try nvidia driver and mixer
i have tried what u've suggested but haven't had much luck (been testing it with zinf playing an mp3 file, and firefox playing audio on a webpage which is a flash plugin)
i downloaded the nforce unified drivers from the nvidia site, however i cant seem to install them - i get the following error messages....
No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running
kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct
kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source
path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
sorry i'm a bit of a linux newbie, not sure what extactly i need to do to get this installed.
(btw, i am currently just using the ubuntu live cd until i get this sorted)
that seems rather self explanatory -- you can't build a kernel module without the kernel build directory
need to install kernel source package
let see -- if ubuntu is debian try something like
apt-cache search kernel
until you find it
