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 having a tough time getting my sound to work at all. I have a SBLive card which is supported by alsa and I have the module for my card emu10k1. All my levels are all the way up and and my card is configured. I know My card works because I a dual-boot with WIN98 and the sound works fine. right know I am running mandrake 10, but I had fedora and the sound didn't work either. I also had dibian and the only way I could get the sound to work was to copy the alsa.autoconfig file to my modutils.conf file but I was told that was a bad idea. also I could not control the sound. here is some info that might be useful.
