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.

Thanks again. The sound "card" appears to be one of these "on-board' devices, it's and nVidia nForce MCP Audio processing Unit. I've already tried installing their Linux driver, but to no avail. I'll try installing cdda2wav first.
At the console type "find / -iname '*cdda2wav*' 2>/dev/null". It should come up with something.
The reason why LINUX does not run on your system very well because HP sets up their systems differently. They are always like this in the past.
In order for audio CDs to play you have to get your sound card working. I suggest buying Turtle Beach Santa Cruz. It works with out any problems. Unmute the the master, pcm, cd and adjust the volumes. Next load up xmms and select /mnt/cdrom, /dev/hdc, or something. You will then see the audio tracks. LINUX can not mount audio CDs because they do not have a real filesystem to go by.
No, the OS that HP uses is a specialize version designed for HP computers and notebooks. If you want to still install LINUX, build a computer. You can get a top a line 32-bit Athlon for under 500 US dollars.
