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 installed RedHat 7.1 and everything works fine, except the SoundCard. When I look into the HardwareBrowser I can see,
that the SoundCard is somehow detected correct (AC97),
but whenever I start the mixer or any other application I get a "Mixer" error or I do not hear anything.
I have a dualboot system (WinXP and RedHat 7.1), so I know, that the speakers are working.
Thanks for your help. I looked into /boot directory and found
just filenames with xxxx-2.4.7, so I assume, that this is the
kernel version. Is my assumption correct or is there a command, that tells me the current version.
Have you modified any config-files to get the soundcard to work or was it working, when you updated the kernel??
hey stoni i have the same soundcard and rh7.1. all i did was run sndconfig as root detected the soundcard and played a sample sound (the sample sound does not play properly though). this was enough to play sound from xmms
