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.

And it doesn't put out any sound when I use amoroK or KRecord either. I have Suse 10.1 for x86_64 and I'm using KDE. My system uses an AMD 64 dual core. When I log in it plays a brief piece of music, so I know the sound chip is working, (my sound controller is integrated). When I installed Linux it detected my "card". When I went into Settings>Sound&Multimedia>Sound System it didn't emit any sound when I pressed the "test" button. Here is what it says when I go into System>Monitor>Sound:
Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706(ALSA v1.0.11rc3 emulation code)
Kernel: Linux linux-1mcj220.127.116.11-4-smp #1 SMP Wed May 3 04 53:23 UTC 2006 x86_64
Type 10: ALSA emulation
NVidia CK804 with ALC850 at 0xfe02d000, irq 50
0: NVidia CK804 (DUPLEX)
Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
31: system timer
0: Realtec ALC850 rev 0
If anybody could suggest something I could try I'd be grateful.
You can also log in as the user that you want to play CDs and type, "groups". That will tell you which groups the user is in. If the user is not in the cdrom group, you can type (as root), "gpasswd -a username cdrom".
