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 not entirely sure if this should go into the hardware forum or not, but here i go anyway.
first things first, i am able to get sound. i can play mp3s (not cds though) without a problem. now, if i weren't as picky as i am, i think i might let this go. i have a soundblaster live and have recently discovered the joys of trying to get digital output to work. i have been told from a number of people that digital out works "out of the box" for redhat 9, but i think they are liars. my card has the dual output configuration, that is, one digital channel and one analog channel. analog output works without a problem. i've tried and tried to install the emu10k1 project drivers and tools. i've followed the instructions, but i still don't get any digital output (in xmms at least). i've editied modules.conf and had it run 'emu-script' like the installation instructions told me, and i also made sure to specify 'yes' for digital output in emu10k1.conf. i don't know if there's something huge that i'm missing here or if i'm totally screwed. for the record, i've tried plugging the analog speakers into the digital port; doesn't work. any help would be appreciated.
