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 no sound in Redhat Linux 8 when i went to play a CD but i did a test on my sound card in linux and it worked fine. I tryed to turn the volume on and i guess that did not work. I want the volume on and i want to crank up the volume. If i do get it on i don't think it will be loud enough. It was ok when i did the test. I just want to learn my sound. Does anyone has any ideas and they want to help me?? I'm a linux newbie and i'm a beginner. yes i configure my winmodem that's something to be proud of. Please reply back with some help. Thanks guys.
sorry that does not work. I tryed that already. That was one of the first things i tryed. Anyway. Why did you bring up windows for?? or was you reading another post of mine either on this forum or another forum?? Please reply back. Thanks.
mathieu: My CD is still not playing nothing. I got a really great idea but you have to guide me through it. Why don't you ssh to my system and set it up and configure it for me?? Please reply back. Thanks.
I heard of it but never used or never heard of it until someone said it to me. They could not do it on my system at that time because i had no internet connection RH8. I must be online in RH8. I will find someone that could help me.

mathieu: I'm telling you this is not working for me. I tryed both my CD drive and DVD drive and then i went to /mnt/cdrom and there was nothing in there. Once again. Are you familar on how to ssh to my box or my system?? I think you or someone should take a look at my linux system and if i have any problems you should try to fix it. I want you to setup my system in the way it should be and configure it. I'm online with RH8 and you have to show me what to do if i have to do anything so you could ssh to my box. Please reply back and help me. Thanks mathieu.
are you using kde or gnome? i've had more success with playing cd's under gnome for some odd reason
if sound is working and just the cd's are not, make sure first that u have a wire from the back of your cd drive to your sound card (yes this means you have to open up your pc and sort through some wires)
once you've ensure that, if u use kde, do turn off aRts and see what happens, otherwise go to gnome, put in a cd and open up cd player from the gnome menu-sound and entertainment menu
