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.

Ok im new to linux and im running Red Hat Linux 7.3... Ok my problem is, i typed 'esd' and it makes the noise, however i get no CD sound, or xmms sound, how can i config it... t says i should but i dont know how, please provide me with some good answers that are newbie friendly, i can offer free hosting to the person who helps me. Thanks.
Free hosting! ha ha ha, this board is free to all, no need to barter for help buddy.
Open up a mixer (In KDE open up kmix by going to K---Run and typing kmix) and make sure your volume is up for one.
Also, you may want to post the output of lsmod. To do this open a term and type LSMOD in lower case. To copy from a terminal highlight the part you want, then use the middle button (or if only 2 buttons both at the same time) to paste.
Well I am glad you got it working, just for future note, that LSMOD is supposed to be lowercase, so lsmod would be the command. And some distros don't come with sndconfig installed, so you may want to search your CDROM for it.
