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 have a YAMAHA ISA PNP sound card that I tried to install in SuSe Linux 6.4. I did my best in following the instructions in the manual to load the drivers as kernel module. I configured them to the parameters that worked in M$ window$ (this card likes to be addressed as an SB Pro compatible: IO 220 IRQ 5 DMA 0).
I am much satisfied with all messages received from my system: he says all modules (sb.c) and drivers are correctly loaded. I get not a single error message, so I did a good job.
The only reason for frustration is that I cannot hear a sound when I play a midi or wav file in KDE. (To be more specific: I also tried the volume control of the players with no use).
My original intention was to attach my /etc/modules.conf and /etc/isapnp.conf files here, for reference, but I do not happen to find how to do this, so I close this message here.
Could you please help me?
For those who may find that I have too many questions here: this is the last one, and, if solved, I will be over a very successful installation as a newbie to Linux. My modem, monitor (an ancient piece) and my VGA card (Trident 512) of which I feared the most work unexpectedly well in Linux. I could never take such a good picture and speed at this screen resolution (800x600) out of these pieces in any M$ Window$ version before.
