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.

well, let's see. I had sound yesterday when i installed redhat 9. (moving up in the world, used to run slackware, YAY). Then, i suspect I was logged in as root and my stupid friend was messing with settings. There is no sound now, I only get an error when i try to play a sound file(any) and then it will tell me that it has changed the output device to null. Here is some infor that may help you.

Bear with me here, I know it should point to dev/dsp. Only problem is that when i change it to dev/dsp, it changes it back.
P.S. modules.conf is owned by root. this is ok right? I won't have permissions problems playing sound as another user. Also, please email me if you know right off the bat what the problem is. I am doing this for a friends comp and he is losing faith in LINUX!!!!!!!
