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'm really sorry but im a super n00b and i dont know what i am doing.
I can't get my sound to work in red hat 7.3 (it worked in mandrake but not in red hat) so i thought i would install alsa but i seem to be having problems doing that.
anyways i have everything extracted into the proper dirs (i hope) and i go
/configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
here's what i get
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
Please, run configure script as first...
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a'
make -C utils update-deps
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a/utils'
Makefile:8: ../Makefile.conf: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `../Makefile.conf'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a/utils'
make: *** [cards.config] Error 2

okay thanks for your help.
and about the name.
how is it objectionable ?
my name is Nathan, freinds call me nater for some reason, someone thought it would be cool for my sn name to be urinater
everyone pees right?
I'm the super noob here, and having problems with my sound. I NEVER used linux and now i'm using red hat 7.2
Can any1 tell me how to get my sound working?
I downloaded some unofficial drivers, but they didn't work, al i got was some error messages, but i'm not sure what they were (cause i wrecked my whole linux and did not install it again).
I read somewhere i needed to mak a boot loadable module, any1 know how to?
But a good thing for us to know to help would be what soundcard you have Type this into a terminal:
lspci (LSPCI lowercase)
And paste the output. To paste from a terminal, highlight the text, and then press the middle button/scroll button or if neither exists, both mouse buttons together into the message body.
