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.

Ok, here is the rundown. Every time I try to install something (My soundcard, counter-strike...etc) it gives me a pop up saying that it's not associated with GNOME, and it asks me if I would like to associate it with GNOME. It still doesn't work? How come I can't install my sound card or anything? (It's a Sound Blaster Live! 24bit soundcard from Creative.) Do I need new drivers or something?
Ok, sorry for the late reply. I am running on my onboard audio right now, so do I have to disable that to run my soundcard correctly? Also, is it possible to run a .exe file? Like, I want to run a LAN version of Counter-Strike 1.6. I have it on a cd. I typed:
ok sorry i dont know anything about counter strike but as for your onboard card you want to go into bios and locate where it is and disable it i only know dell bios so if its not a dell i would search for your motherboard/bios on google
