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.

Thanks for reminding me to do that. However, I get the same errors as when I used the .rpm file. I'd post the error messages (which i have on disk) but I cant since Notepad says that the files are "corrupt."
Can we get this sorted out? I've never managed a successful install yet of the nforce drivers. The i810_audio driver in the kernel only plays 45 KHz sound (KDE sounds and such) for some reason, there's a couple of threads on it, probably in the hardware forums, but they haven't had a response.

Having some sound issues myself but try the alsa driver.It does work better for me.If you only get kde sounds try to disable the arts sound server or point it into the right direction depending on what you use for sound.
Anyway - if I try to play sound from two apps at the same time my x-server crashes.I'll try the nvidia sound driver and report back.
Keep in mind that there are two different versions of the onboard sound for nforce2 chipsets.One calls itself 'soundstorm' and the other one is just sound.lspci shows two 'multimedia audio' thingy's for my motherboard.
One is [Via VT82C686B] the other is AC97 Audio Controller.
Hmm... it may be working after all. It plays mp3 audio, it just doesn't play CDs for some reason. I have the original nforce motherboard, and I think I'm getting somewhere. I'll fiddle around with the module a bit more, then perhaps try the UT2003 demo. I thought about alsa but I've been busy with other things, and sound also works in Enlightenment. I'll fiddle a bit more and report back if I find anything important. Thanks
