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.

Whenever I play a .bin of an SVCD or VCD the sound hisses. It's not the image because I have burned them an played them through Mplayer and a DVD Player and they work fine. I have tried OSS and Alsa as the outputs and neither have seemed to work. I'm using SuSE 9.1 and usually run KDE.
Distribution: CentOS 3.3-4, OpenBSD 3.3, Fedora Core 4, Ubuntu, Novell Open Enterprise Server
DMA is not this guys problem. This is a documented Fedora bug. I just read an article from osnews.com that gave the same problem. here is an excerpt
Of all of FC2's warts, this has turned out to be the most annoying problem. I don't know how many people suffer from it, but it happens with every sound card I have. I hereby thank Peg Gallo for sending the fix to me: In KDE, start KMix (Main Menu --> Sound & Video --> KMix), click the Input tab, and check the "Advanced" box. You will see one or more devices called "IEC958." One of them is the culprit; turn them off until you find the right one.
