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 checked the cables from cd to soundcard, rights to devices, and anything else I could find to check to get a cd to play. It is not muted any place that I can find. My soundcard will play sounds for opening and closing programs and will play music from harddrive but not cd. I seen something about having to configure or turn on the inputs from cd to soundcard, but I cant find any more than that. This is the only thing that doen't work, and I don't really needed but it should work. I have RedHat 8.0 workstation install with hda is Windows, hdb is linux, hdc is cdrom/rw, hdd is cdrom, sound is SB ensoniq audioPCI. There has to be some little dumb something that I can't find.
I have searched and visit this site often in hopes of finding a fix. All the answers run toward pluging in the cable from cd to soundcard, which I have, to rights to devices, which I have changed, to making sure something is not muted, which nothing is. I have searched google, and visited other linux sites, no luck.
