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.

This mandrake 9.0 is nearly as good as I would like it to be. But I am still having some snags with the onboard sound.
The module for i810 audio loads at boot
I get most, if not all, of the KDE start up jingle base thing
I have just had a go at some of the games and got the sound OK with tuxracer
When I put a disc in the CDrom/CDRW device, I can play music by using the play button on the front of the device, but get nothing from KSCD.
When I put a disc in the DVD/CDrom device and fire up the KSCD the screen shows the disc as playing, I can start and stop, change track, etc but get no sound.
So, I am presuming that it would be some sort of linking problem.
Am I right to suspect this and how would I correct it?
The onboard sound chip is another one of these bloody awful AC97 devices, it is sometimes identified as an intel 82801BA/BAM AC97 and sometimes seems to be refered to as an Advance ALS200 (i think)
p.s. I know that elsewhere in the forums I have been threatening to buy a decent sound card, but that doesn't mean that I don't want to sort this snag - I suspect that I am really a tight git at heart!!!!!!!!!!!!
