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.

hello again all, after i installed mandrake 9.0, and started running it, the sound for when you first log onto KDE played with no problem, but when i play a game, the sound is extremely jumpy and skips, like i only hear every 3rd second of sound. i tried opening up a console and doing a modprobe for my sound card (ac 97) but it did nothing, also, does anybody know how to work with the palm hotsink program that comes with mandrake 9.0? cause i can hotsink, but no information is getting transfered. and lastly, i put in the required lines into the /etc/fstab that someone told me to put in earlier so i can have access to my cd drive, but it didn't work. my login name is shaggy, and this is what i put:
i got it to work by fiddleing around with it, it turns out, it only doesn't give me permisison when i have a audio cd or no cd in it
i understand the no cd, but why the audio cd, i put in a cdr with some rpms that i burned from windows, and it showed up fine. also, fixed the pda problem, i just downloaded jpilot and that works perfectly, but can someone help me with the sound issue? it works fine with kde itself, but whenever i load a program that uses sound, it is very choppy. also, i have a great system with great specs, but i tried to play the 3d ping pong game, and it was slow and choppy, like my system couldn't handle it, which i know it can, i build and render 3d things in my spare time. is it a compatibility issue with my video card? i have a geforce 3 titanium 500. thanx in advance
