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.

Wen putting music CD , cd player reported error. Pls advise how to fix it. Thanks
All alsa rpm pkgs (including alsa-utils) for fedora core 3 in the system install disks. Since FC3 is an rpm based distribution, why not just install the rpm package which was designed for the system. This precludes having to compile from source code.
Additionally, when the yum repos are configured well, the user simply does "yum update" and if there is an upgrade in alsa rpm pkgs, yum simply updates the FC3 alsa pkgs automatically.
Thus, it is not necessary to comile alsa-utils, which I think is confusing, especially for new users who may not have all the development pkgs installed to compile source. Further, each time a new alsa-utils pkg is released, the user has to compile and install each time.
