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 running Redhat 8.0 and I can't get sound. I running the 2.4.18-24.8.0 linux kernel. I have two sound cards that aren't running properly. I have an onboard soundcard on my asus p4pe (i810_audio). I also have Creative's Audigy2. I installed the audigy2 driver from Creative's open source website (EMU10K1 version .20a). I also confirmed that the soundcore and sound modules were running. They recognized both the i810_audio as well as the audigy cards. I also confirmed that the audigy and i810_audio modules existed using the lsmod command. Sound has never worked on my system --- even before I installed audigy. That makes me think that I have a system issue. Can anyone please help me???????????
Oh ya, i confirmed that /etc/modules.conf has alias for both audigy and i810_audio. I used the dmesg command to find what was recognized on boot up. Both cards were listed. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks, J
I had the same issue with a RH 8.0 machine. Tried everything: updated drivers, swapped sound cards, et. al.
I accidentally plugged the speakers into the wrong outlet on the sound card one night and there it was --sound. This is not the same outlet is used when the machine was running RH 7.2 or way long ago when it had WIN 98.
I wish I could tell you the exact output ( spkr or whatever) but I can't. I use cheap soundblaster cards and buy them in bulk. I don't have a manual.
My bet is with subservant. I thought that my sound was dead until I had the bright thought to plug in some analog headphones. I imagine that Audigy cards are like Creative's Live! cards in that they output digital and analog through the same port, which Linux doesn't support (or so I hear). I guess you're relegated to analog sound until someone figures it out.
i also installed the emu-tools and tried to the tool configuring script "emu-script" It allowed me to specify either analog or digital. I tried both options but I did receive an error. "SOUND_MIXER_PRIVATE3: You're probably using an older incompatible driver: Invalid argument". THe error confused me because I've only installed the latest version of the driver. I'm still a little confused about the difference between analog and digital. I just thought of it as analog -tape, digital -cd. I don't know what analog headphones are unless almost all headphones are analog. If all headphones are, I tried it and it didn't work. I appreciate the help.
