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've searched forums all over the place and people have had similar problems to mine, but mine is a little different.
I'm running FC2, and it detects my sound card. I hear the test sound. I run GAIM and i have sound with that. But when i try playing a CD i get no sound. I even tried ripping them into .ogg files and the same thing happens.
I decided to reinstall Fedora 2 because i forgot to install a whole bunch of apps last time and i didnt feel like downloading them all.
So, i tried ripping to .ogg again, and played it in xmms and it works.
But I go to Sound and video --> CD Player and try playing music straight from the cd, but it doesnt work. I know that all of the connection inside my computer are right, because i also run WinXP and it works there.
Being able to play the cd in CD Player would be great, I tried to figure out how to run it in XMMS but i couldnt find where i should select the cd to play.
Im not picky, being able to play cd's in either xmms or CD Player would be great.
The reason XP can play then is because the sound is digital. In KsCD or any other program I know of besides xmms, the sound is analog and thus needs an analog cable going from CDROM to sound card, which is not there by default when u buy a computer.
