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'm really new to Linux and can't get sound to work. I have Ensoniq 1371 built into the motherboard. RH8 detects that and also the es1371 driver. I installed sound configuration and tried to manually configure it, but that didn't get any sound to work either. I ran lsmod and it's the only sound module listed. It looks like it is configured right in modules.conf (alias sound-slot-0 es1371). Does anyone have any ideas for me to try?
I know this may sound daft, but have you checked your software volume control levels?
That had me stumped for 2 days! I just ran 'kmix' and it showed that all my levels were muted!
Apparently RH8 sets all volumes to min as a default!
Your idea isn't daft. I was told to check that before. I checked the volume controls and they are loud and not muted. I've been working on this for a couple weeks and am now totally stumped. I've been through dmesg, var/log/messages, and different configuration files. I also have Windows on this computer and sound works there, so I know the sound system works. Any other ideas on what to look at?
