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.

asus had tried there best to not support linux. They even had a lawsute put agenest them here not to long ago. If i was you i would go and buy and Sound Blaster Live. They don't take a-lot of money out of your wallet, and it fixed the problems on the asus motherbord i had. Hope that gives you a idea of what probley wrong.
I am using an intergrated sound card, namely the Intel Corp. 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02).
I have used several distros and this has worked in every single one of them, including Fedora Core 2 and 3, Ubuntu (which is debian based), Gentoo, and Knoppix.
I have been using it with ALSA on all of those systems, running through the eSound Daemon (although with debian, now I'm using KDE so it would be aRts). From what I used, it seems like ALSA's drivers for this card are already pretty sophisticated - the sound quality is indistinguishable from the Windows drivers written by Intel themselves.
Anyway, I'm sure it's a pretty simple problem - but it's also a problem I've never run into before and I have no idea how to fix it. Help!
