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 writing again regarding the sound (all sounds ie on startup, on audio cds) on my Sony VAIO PCG_GRZ515G laptop. I've searched almost all the help sessions and found only bits and pieces of information regarding having NO SOUND on statup in KDE installed on Redhat 7.3. I also do not have any sound when i try to play a cd. the machine seems to be reading the audio cd, but no sound comes out. The sound works fine in Windows XP (i have dual boot). The volume is cranked in the mixer, sound server, and system bell... I've noted some hopefully useful information below:
I ran /sbin/sndconfig and found out that my soundcard is:
Intel Crop.|82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio
Running sndconfig gives me no errors, except that when the system is supposed to play a test sound, it doesn't.
When I look at dmesg it contains the following lines near the bottom:
Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 0.21, 07:42:52 Apr 18 2002
