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.

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.

Hmm, I seem to have a bit of a problem, my speakers dont seem to work on *nix, I have Red Hat 8.0 but the wierd thing is they work on Xp When I go to Sound Card Detection, I get...
Vendor: VIA Technologies
Model" VT8233 AC97 Audio Controller
, thats what I get in a little window, and when I do play test sound, nothing happens... Can someone PLEASE help me fix this problem? I just started using Red Hat, so I will need some basic step by step instructions on what to do. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply, when I type that, I get the different options to the left, and I put the volume thingy on Max, but at the end of the volume thing to the right, it says <Mic and my speakers still dont work, I think the problem is that my volume is based on my Mic, but my Mic isnt even plugged in. Any other ideas? :\
I don't have msn, yahoo, or AIM, but I do have Licq. I could probably use Gaim.
That's weird about your permissions not staying. Perhaps it's the shell you're using. Anyway, you can reach me on Licq at 3631175. I won't be on it for a few hours though because I'm at work right now.
Does it work when you log in as root? Not that that's a good idea in general, but it could help narrow down the cause of the problem, i. e., if it does work when logged in as root, it's almost certainly a permissions issue.
