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.

Please see my previous post. Also, I was able to play a CD using RH Linux. So I know my Soundblaster works for that purpose. What I am expecting is to hear sounds when I click on icons, etc. Am I expecting too much?
So regular CD's work huh, then what type of sounds are you trying to play? If your expecting sounds on clicking icons or anything, you might need to set that up yourself. Can you play wav or any other formats. If it works then, your sound card is working perfectly.
