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.

Use those after you've killed your wm. Another option instead of using those, kill your sound server. In KDE it's gonna be artsd, so ps -aux it and kill it's pid. esound also might be on, check your ps -aux
I have this morning swapped the audio cable to be doubly sure of that bit.
with ref to the comment about creative taking over some other companies, I knew about this, they made 2 cards that were almost identical and carried the SBPCI128 name, they did have different skt layouts, but I have the original paperwork still for my card and have made sure I'm on the right socket, just to be double sure I have tried the other skts as well.
My SBPCI128 Is recognised as an ensoniq chip. ES1370
tried typing kmix from prompt and it responded with something like dcop server started and then back to the prompt which meant nothing to me, but when I went into kmix from the menu, this time the mixer showed the cd input was off (The fake LED was dull), when I enabled it a blast of new orleans jazz comforted me. So what exactly has been done to sort this.
Would u plz tell me how to enable the CD input that might have been disabled in the first place. Also, how can you know whether it disabled? I am looking all over for an answer of this tedious problem.
My sound card is built-in chip i810 run uder kernel 2.4.20-8.
thanks alot, but I don't bet, hope you don't mind.
