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 am using slackware 9.1.
My soundcard is an ISA PnP, and I am using the isapnp tool to configure it. I finally found a combination of I/Os and IRQs that doesn't give any conflict warning, but still I get no sound.
I suspect that I have not sound support in my kernel. How can I check? Which other checks can I do to tackle the problem? Sorry for the simple questions, but I am really a newbye...
Location: Florida in a town not on the weather map
Distribution: back to Fedora
i had the same prob iqbala ( and i actually fixed it with help from these boards ). and even tho i am brand new to Slack and Linux, what I did was check my alsamixer and it turned out that none of my settings were being saved. and they still dont save so i am constantly fixing it when i want sound. but anyways, i know ur probably like "ugh ok dumbass" but i just wanted to share .
When you boot, you should get a message like: ALSA Settings turnned off... or something. There it says something about how to save your settings, alsaconf store or something like that... Not sure about the exact sintaxys, i'm a newbie myself, but the same happened to me
