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 am running Slackware 8.1 on a Compaq DeskPro
200 Mhz Pentium MMX processor.
I have been trying to get sound to work for a few days now after installing Slackware. I have an Ensoniq SoundScape Pnp card. I configured 'isapnp' with 'pnpdump -c' and when I run 'isapnp' it works. I then try to load the 4 modules needed to run sound, 'sound.o' , 'mpu401.o' , ' ad1848.o' and 'sscape.o' . The first two load fine, ' ad1848' loads but it sends a message to 'dmesg', "No ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones...." .
'sscape.o will then not load (and I have been specifying the DMA, IDE and IO settings that 'isapnp' returns), it leves a 'dmesg' "detect_sscape_pnp: port ffffffff is not free"
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I suspect that I need to get 'ad1848' to recognise the card before 'sscape.o' will work, but how do I do this and why does 'sscape.o' think the port is not free?
Any help would be appreciated, as I want to be able to listen to and burn CDs and MP3s.
