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 an Intel chipset on my soundcard, and whenever I try to record (normal sound) or play a MIDI file, the program stops responding, and must be forced to quit. Is there any way I can fix this? I was told it was because of the kernel and something to do with drivers, is there an alternate driver?
I'm using Audacity, but trying to play a MIDI file, or record sound period, any program, the program ceases to respond and I must force quit.
This is the lspci (-v) output for my sound card:
Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 01c9
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
Memory at dfebc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
The "Subsystem: Dell Unknown Device 01c9" might be what's causing it, but I don't really know anything about this, so I could, more than probably, be wrong. Could it be a driver problem? Do you know whether it's fixable or not? Any help at all is really appreciated.
I think the unknown device might be a modem.As for midi.I dont believe your sound card has midi hardware built into it..Only cards i know of that do are sound blaster cards like my audigy2..If you want to play midi files under linux and you dont have a sound card with midi hardware you will need to use timidity .And are you sure the modules for your card are loaded..what does lsmod tell you..??I think the module names are something like snd_hda_intel snd_hda_codec ...For midi you should see things like this..And if recording "sounds" means like recording guitars and synths..like as In recording with Pro Tools and Cubase..your looking at needing a real time kernel or atleast low-latency and using jack..
