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.

(this is a reposted message from another thread with a less informative title)
I'm trying to get a Riptide audio controller to work correctly in Red Hat 9, as it's the card that came with the PC I'm using to run Linux for the first time. Apparently several people have had some level of success with the card, and I'm wondering if anyone has experienced the sort of problems I'm having,
I got the drivers from the Linuxant site.
I installed the RPM as root and ran 'ripconfig'.
I ran the volume control and jiggled the main volume slider, while playing some sounds in the sound preferences control panel. This actually brought some sound for the first time!
However, the soundcard seems to intermittently wig out and start playing all kinds of noise. It will spontaneously recover from this. It seems like whenever it happens, a message like this pops up in the 'dmesg' log:
Code: f3 aa 58 59 e9 19 81 ff ff ba f2 ff ff ff e9 65 81 ff ff ba
Does anybody know what this means? It seems like something fairly low-level, but obviously I don't know what I'm talking about.
Also, moving the volume sliders all the way to the top (on main or secondary mixer controls) actually makes the sound disappear. The loudest it gets is when the slider is right below the top of the range.
