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.

Looks like your sound drivers are all loaded. Do you have any sound in Linux, but only issues in VLC, i.e. in wine? Why use wine at all? VLC is available for RHEL5 in the rpmforge repository. See this link for more info: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-redhat.html
If you're a newbie in Linux, like you say, I'd not think you're paying for a RHEL subscription, hence you won't be able to keep your system current. If that's correct, I suggest you switch to CentOS: http://centos.org/
