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 a question. I have installed Mandrake 8.1...(Fabulous, I am hooked) and it recognised my sound, which ic a cmedia 8738. However I cant get sound out. I have checked mixers etc to see if the volume is off, but all seems ok. Any Ideas out there.
I dont want to be rude, but make sure your speaker is connected to the correct port on Linux. I found out that there is two ports that work for windows and when i switch to linux only one of those ports work, so try them.
Originally posted by jglen490 You might also run sndconfig, as root. sndconfig pretty well "walks" through identifying and setting up sound cards for Linux.
We'll keep trying 'til we get you sounding good !!
Thanks I appreciate the help. Yea, I tried sndconfig, and again it does recognise the card but when it plays the sample, nothing. I am sure whatever it is it'll be simple. I was thinking what I might do this weekedn is load a version of redhat on another drive ans see if that plays.
