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.

OSS and ALSA are linux sound systems, ALSA is newer and better but OSS is easier to setup.
Thanks makuyl... This is the output
I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said Yoda
Y-O-D-A Yoda, Yo-Yo-Yo-Yo Yoda
Well I've been around but I ain't never seen
A guy who looks like a Muppet but he's wrinkled and green
Oh my Yoda, Yo-Yo-Yo-Yo Yoda
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
How he can raise me in the air just by raising his hand
Oh my Yoda, Yo-Yo-Yo-Yo Yoda, Yo-Yo-Yo-Yo Yoda

Well, the modules look ok to me, although I'm no expert on this.
Does alsa see the card? cat /proc/asound/cards
Can you play any audio? play somefile.wav
Have you ran alsaconf? alsaconf
Tried pumping up the volumes? alsamixer or aumix
Yes I am sure, However I have insalled alsa but am stuck on this point:
If you get an "init_module: No such device" error when you run this modprobe command, make sure that you uninstall all the sound related modules first.
When I run lsmod this is the output BUT I am not sure what to uninstall.
