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 am a newbie.
I remember using mandrake 8.2 and the sound worked right away,
but now for some reason I installed Mandrake 10 and I cant get a sound out
of the card.
It seems like it has detected it during the installation because in the
control center > hardware I can see it in the list of detected hardware as
an YMF -724. So it must be there.... but on the KMIX applet next to the time
I can see a speaker with a red X on it, but mute is NOT selected.
When I click on it with the left mouse button I get a small window that
tells me to select current mixer from a drop down box. But there is no
mixer in there to select!
What must I do? Please if you know discribe the solution as best as you can
because I am new to linux.
I found this post that seems to have the solution.... but I have no idea what to do!
Can anyone help me out?
