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've had linux for 2 days and im having problems getting my sound to work on my slackware box, i don't really know the sound card that im using and i can't really find it on the web, i do however, have compaq presario 5050 with everything factory except the packardbell moniter. i guess my question is: whice sound driver do i install.
from what i remember and looked up, i think i have some type of aureal sound card, i remember a aureal audio installed on the preset of the computer disc.
128mb ram-oops forgot to mention that i did put more ram in (factory is 64)
linux native and swap partitions only
reply if you need anymore information, i will keep a close watch on the forum till problem is solved...thanks =D
so far in my short search you have "An Aureal A3-D audio card with 360-degree positioning delivers exceptional three-dimensional (3-D) sound through only two speakers, and an integrated 3-D Rage LT Pro video card" as copied from a web site.
Sound card is built into the motherboard best I can determine.
I found my soundcard, at last, this is what it is and i still can't get it to work correctly. When im done with opensound im going to cp the log here.
Generic ESS ES1869 based soundcard or motherboard (non-PnP)
