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 using FC1 with kde desktop on an Intel 845GLLY board with a 1.7 g P4 and 40 gig HDD. Earlier I could play all the formats. But lately due to some problem with the UPS, the box got a few power failures and had to hard boot. Recently to my amazement there is no sound in my system. I include here with some debugging info that I think may be of interest

Yes I have tried running the mixers but still the problem persists. How do I know if there is a problem with the sound card or not ? I suspect that the sound card is gone coz when I booted xp there was no sound in it too!!! What can be done ? Should I insert an third party sound card? which is the most compatible one to do?
I tried this and got the following output
[root@localhost fedora]# modprobe snd-intel8x0;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o: insmod snd-intel8x0 failed
No the sound doesnot work in xp yet. But I cant comprehend the fact that all was well before that fatal reboot and afterwards the sound simply dissappeared. Is there any other hard ware probing and trouble shooting tool in linux ??
