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.

Hi all. I am brand new to linux and am not a programmer. I was just so tired of winblows crashing my friends got me on this.
I just installed Fedora Core 2 and can't get my sound card to work. The system recognizes the card (82801DB (1CH4) AC97 Intel Audio Controller) but on Soundcard Detection is always fails (I can't hear the test sounds). I'm not satisfied with it telling me "automatic detection of the sound card did not work" and blah blah blah "no sound for you."
Another linux forum (I've been on so many I can't remember which one) with a similar problem posted suggested that I may need Sound Module i810_audio which I am guessing is an rpm file. But I've spent days looking for it on the net and can't find it. It isn't on any of my source disks either.
Does anybody know where I can find this file? If I can actually find it, where do I install it to on my hard drive? Which file or directory?
Thanks for any and all help- I think I'm in way over my head but I'll be d@mned if I have to go back to microsoft. I'll never hear the end of it from that weenie Gates.
bosewicht- if the mod is already there, where is it and what do I need to do??? I looked throughout my harddrive and could not find it.
comprookie2000- I checked out that link (thanks) but "kmix" is not a good command on my system (Fedora Core 2). I had a friend walking me through some network connection problems and he wanted me to use kedit. I couldn't do that either, so he had me (successfully) use emacs commands. Is there another way for me to "kmix?"
