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 checked the soundblaster site and was unable to locate any linux drivers. I was wondering if anyone else had some drivers for the audigy 2 zs? I sucessfully installed gtk-gnutella, retrieved a file, went to play the file and it gives me the error: Could not open resource for writing. So I'm guessing its my soundcard. I've done a bit of searching on the forums and I coulden't find anything.
This is not happy advice, but I had an Audigy (I think SE) that the specified driver just would not work for. After spending several days messing with it (and it messing with my head), I bought a £5 generic sound card that installed in about 5 minutes, which I'm listening to now.
I have a soundblaster audigy 2 ZS. Your problem is not likely to be an issue with a driver, but just the configuration of the card with either alsa or oss. As root at a terminal, type in "lspci". If in the output you see
lspci is on my Debian box in /usr/bin/lspci, so every user can access it, you don't even need to be root. Not sure why Fedora doesn't have it, yet another reason not to like that distro. I suggest you use yum or some website to find the rpm for lspci.
