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.

ok, i have run those chmod commands, and now alsamixer isn't going:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
what am i supposed to do after that? xmms still complains about no output device.
should i reboot first before anything happens?
oh, and JROCK i have done a swarret --upgrade , i dont know if that would have updated alsamixer or not, or even if that is causing a problem? I have another sound card somewhere, should i try using that instead of the onboard sound? even tho the onboard works fine in other os's
i am using 2.4 kernel, but i tried a 2.6 kernel, installed it and the sound module i need... but now in that kernel i can't startx for some reason, which honestly cant be bothered with if there is a way to get the 2.4 kernel sound running.
