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.

Ok I just installed RH9 and been getting thing's setup and installed but have run into a snag with the sound card, I have a soundblaster 16bit card PCI and cant get it to work. If I go to control center in the menu I can test and hear sound but other then that I can hear any sound from web sites, WHY is that??????? I also tryed "sndconfig" but get a command not found
Ok well I got some good news and some not so good news. The good news is I got sndconfig installed and working, sound card configured and making sound but only when I am logged in as root, If i log in as another user no sound and can't su and run sndconfig from other user accounts??????? why is that???? Im thinking maybe a permission thing or something like that
i had a similar issue go into kmix and look at all the mixer volumes and all of them that are muted,, look about in the middle of them and look for one called something monitor,,, once i unmuted that i had all sounds.
play an mp3 or something while you do this so you know its on or not.
