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.

How can I tell KDE 3.2 (or arts, rather) to use the ALSA device hw:0,1 instead of the default one (hw:0,0)?
In the KDE control center, under sounds & Multimedia > Sound System > Hardware tab, I've tried to add 'hw:0,1' to the "Override device location" text box, but that doesnt seem to work (it doesnt' seem to 'understand' that syntax).
I've also tried telling it to use the device file thats supposed to correspond to hw:0,1 (/dev/pcmC0D1p), but I think you can't use it directly in ALSA like with OSS. (it also produces an error).
PS. I don't want to tell arts to use ALSA's OSS emulation, as that, for some reason makes arts use 100% CPU, and then eventualy crash with the dreaded 'CPU overload' error.
