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.

alsaconf...what does that say??
should find your card ok.
I've had some problems on my laptop now, using the snd-intel8x0 module.
I've upgraded to the latests kernel: 22.214.171.124 and with a few tweaks sound is back.
after recompile of new kernel, /dev/dsp0 doesn't exists.
mknod /dev/dsp0 c 14 3
chmod 777 /dev/dsp*
mknod /dev/mixer0 c 14 3
chmod 777 /dev/mixer*
solved the problem for me...
thanks akilles. I spoke with a friend and he suggested purchasing a soundcard rather than using the onboard sound for a number of reasons, one of which was that my onboard sound would probably cause me a lot of extra work. Well, I bought the card and after installation it was detected and I had sound within mins - can't believe I spent about a week trying to get onboard sound to work!!!! When I get some more spare time I'm going to look into the onboard sound again. Thanks for your help.
