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.

Im a linux noob, just migrated from windows, i have some knowledge of linux, however. Right now, im running red hat 8, but ive had this flash problem on slackware 9, red hat 9, SuSe, and Red Hat 8. In windows, everything worked just fine, all the audio and video synched up without any problem, but in linux, the audio goes off track very quickly, making everything very unsynched, and oftentimes the animation is very choppy. Im using the Macromedia flash plugin for Mozilla on all the distros ive tried this on. If it helps, here is my system info.
1.5G DDR 2700 RAM
Red Hat 8
Radeon 9700 Pro Video Card (detected and installed just fine)
OK down to business:
Did you install the flash player yourself? Can you give me an example of a site you're having problems with the sound and stuff getting all out of wack? What version of the flash player? What version of Mozilla?
ive tried both the tarball and the rpm, and the rpm cleaned up playing a bit, but the audio still runs ahead after a few seconds. the site im mainly trying to view is homestarrunner.com, which most of my linux running friends have zero problem with, and cant imagine why i always have this problem regardless of my distro.
