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.

First, I want to say that I appreciate this forum. I haven't posted much, but I am enjoying learning by reading here.
I am almost fully migrated from Windows now, but there are 3 or 4 things I would like to figure out how to do, if possible. I am really new to Linux, so please bear with me...
If any of my questions are not in the right place here, please let me know. I have looked on the forum for specific answers to these questions; but either have missed them, or they are not here yet.
The first question I am wondering is:
How do I get sound to play when I am on a web page with sound in the background? I don't know how to do this in Linux. I have set up the sound server(I think that's what it's called), and when I test the sound card, I hear the little guitar cord play to confirm it is working. My guess is that I need some kind of plugin for Mozilla to get sound to work on web pages? If this is the case, I would really appreciate knowing what plugin, where to get it, and how to install/setup.
I am having the same issue with fedora core 2, but it is not only with Firefox. I am not able to get any two programs to play audio at the same time. I have to stop one to release the audio driver and then play the other.
I know this doesn't help much, but at least you know your not in this boat alone. When I find an answer I will be sure to post.
I appreciate the efforts so far. I am sure that we will figure this out eventually. As far as I know, Java and Flash would not affect weather or not sound would play on web pages which have sound embedded in their back grounds, so there may be something I already have installed, but just have not set up right??
