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.

Oh no! just installed RH9 and it cannot find my sound card - a Creative SBLive card. It runs fine under XP without any additional drivers. I have checked the Creative site but no Linux support - anyone come across this? is there a generic driver I can use?
OK - thanks will try that. The play test fails when I installed RH9, I thought it odd also but knew there'd be an easy answer.
My ignorance on the second point, went to creative.com, went to support picked the region & product, picked Linux and got this "Sorry, no Creative updates are available for the selected product. " - thanks for the link.
modprobe is usually located in /sbin, but it should be in roots path. If you used su to become root, then remember to type 'su - root' or just 'su -'. the - is important. (without it, roots login files won't be run, and things like the correct path wont be set)
