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.

it boots, and everything, xmms starts, and i get peaks with the equilizer scope as if music were playing, but, no sound is coming out of my speakers. the modules load fine at boot...the speakers are plugged in and working fine, cuz i get throughput with the pre2 kernel.
here is my /etc/modules.d/alsa:
# Alsa 0.9.X kernel modules' configuration file.
# $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/media-sound/alsa-utils/files/alsa-modu

# Set this to the correct number of cards.

Is that correct? and my alsamixer is not muted. the levels are maxxed. i dont' know what i could be doing wrong or what could be the problem.
Well I suggest you disable Advanced Linux Sound Architecture for a moment and try if everything works using Open Sound System. It worked for me ... until a latet test-version I will be happy with that. Before 2.6.x-final I will however keep checking if ALSA support works fine by now ...
I'm having a soundcard which uses the ac97 codec also ...
