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.

I'm running a plain vanilla build of RedHat 9.0 2.4.20-24.9. I recently installed ALSA after some hair-pulling. I modified my /etc/modules.conf file to accomodate the new sound settings.
Problem: Each time I reboot, something is appending the older sound setting back to the bottom of the modules.conf file, effectively screwing up my sound all over again.
Can anyone tell me what might be doing this and/or how I might stop it?
