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.

Ehh, If it says, unknown device, you will probably need to download externel drivers for it, because the kernel can't identifiy it. Oh, your sound card is this line:
01:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Rockwell International: Unknown device 4310
Chameleon Audio/Modem ComboCard is what I think I have. I went to the hewlettpackard site for the Pavilion 8650C I own. This is ugly. I probably have to enable my modem first, too. I have it disabled as of the installation.
The drivers provided on the recover disc for win98SE for my original system are the following:
in audio folder: Au8810, SBlaster I think Au is Aureal
in aud-mod(which I think is the audio-modem combo drivers): AudioHSF, Hsf and I saw familiar things that use to run in background for win98SE (Msg32.exe) I also noticed "Riptide" in this folder.
In the modem folder: Aztech, Lucent, Conexant(sounds familiar), Lucent ADSL
I located the au8810 on the ALSA site. BUT, would it be much better to get a combo driver? I don't use my modem, though. Will installing just the au8810 driver work even when I disabled my modem which is part of the sound card?
The install instructions for au8810 are tough. What's comipling into kernel and building a seperate module?

Linuxant has an RPM for MDK 9.2. I have 10.0 CE and will be getting Official once the ISO comes out. Is it safe to download the MDK 9.2 RPM? Also, I'm not sure what Kernel I'm using it's probably not the newer one provided with MDK 10.0CE. Where can I find my Kernel info?
