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.

o.k., I'm going nuts trying to get my sound to work!!! After countless days and sleepless nights I still don't get any sound. I love RH9 and I know I'm only a newb but this is too much. Anyway, I have a Aureal Vortex 2 au8830 soundcard on a Sony Vaio. I downloaded the driver but all these errors come up. When I type /usr/sbin/sndconfig, it finds my sndcard but says the aureal semiconductor/ Vortex 2 is not supported! Someone please help me! I'm desperate. Thanx in advance guys!
Distribution: Fedora Core 1 & WinXP Pro & Gentoo 1.4 & Arch Linux
May not help much but did you try re-booting your comp to see if the magical penguins do their work or go into aumix and adjust the sound. I'm using Nforce2 onboad sound and it didn't list the module until after I rebooted my system.
When you say you downloaded and installed the drivers what EXACTLY did you do (give us the commands that you typed)? Did you at any point type the lines ./configure --with-cards=<yourcard>, make and make install? If not, did you install from an rpm file? If none of the above then it's pretty safe to say you haven't installed your drivers. There are pretty detailed instructions on the also site (www.alsa-project.org).
