So I have two specific questions, but I think my final question will address both and will help me in the future.
From troubleshooting and searching around as to why my computer has no sound (running linux mint 18 x64), Ive discovered that my motherboard (GA-Z77X-UD5H) requires realtek drivers to be downloaded and installed.

Here is the driver: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false
After downloading, it pretty much requires you to know how to use the terminal to install the drivers, which I suck at. I can install thhings through the software center, synaptic pacage manager, when shit pretty much automates (like chrome downloaded from the web), and also by copy and pasting from what people write online (unsafe I know).
I need some help as to how to install this to get my sound up and running.
These are the instructions that comes with the driver:
I cant get it working, tried watching a few videos and reading up, but having a lot of trouble.
I have another hard drive in my computer that I formatted as ext4 and use for media storage, and also as a steam game folder. The problem is it doesnt mount automatically. How do I get this to just be mounted when I boot up linux?
Where can I learn how to use the terminal and linux more effectively? I have made the commitment to switch over full time and only use windows when im forced to (work and specific games). If I was better I wouldnt be here asking these questions, and will be able to figure this out on my own in the future.
Thanks in advance for any help!
