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.

I am quite new to linux and have managed to load up the new Mandrake 10 Community. Let me tell you it took forever for me to scrounge this forum and get my video drivers working good, but I am at a loss. I know this has been posted and posted but I absolutely cannot get my soundcard to work.
I have a Audigy Gamer
HardDrake detects it correctly but the driver is not working. I've played a little with the mixer and I cannot figure it out.
in the mandrake control centre (configure your computer)>hardware>hardware> then highlight the sound card, then at the bottom of the right hand pane, you should click "run config tool" which gives you a window that has a dropdown of the sound drivers available to your card.
Because it knows that the kernel version has alsa in it (or however it's termed) it pre select's the alsa driver - the one prefixed with snd- in my case it was snd-emu10k1 for my sound blaster live! 5.1 digital and all I got to start with was the screeching. So I put it back to the OSS driver emu10k1 and it was fine.
