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 have 2 soundcards in my box, 1 is onboard and 1 is a SBLive! card. I use both soundcards in Windows XP and for the moment I don't want to disable the onboard one via the BIOS until absolutely necessary.
How do I tell Suse to use my SBlive! over the Via onboard card as the default?
Well, if you prefer GUI.. No Problem at all!!! At least with SuSE. Try following
Log in as root (in KDE)
Start the YAST Control Center.
(e.g. open a console window and type: yast2
then press enter)
Select "Hardware" from the left List and then the "Sound" Icon from the right frame of the YAST Window.
The SuSE YAST Sound Configuration will be started.
You will see the configured Sound Cards.
The Cards are numbered 0, 1 etc.
You shall see both cards. Remember what values and names are displayed for the cards.
If the cards are in the wrong order, delete both of them and then add them in the order you want to have them.
Card #0 is the default card.
If you see only one card then configure first the other. After this is OK then you are sure that
both cards can be accessed. Then procede like above described, so you have both cards in
the right order.
