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 finally fixed some of my other problems, like my NIC, USB mouse, etc. Now everytime I start KDE, there is an error message about KMix, and there is a volume meter right in the middle of my screen that is constantly set to 0%. If I try and turn the sound up, it immediately goes back to zero - just like someone was constantly turning my sound down. I did just recompile, but I don't think that I selected anything that would affect this. Can anyone help?
As root, run the "alsamixer" command in Konsole and make sure that Master, PCM and CD are set close to the maximum.
Does that work?
I had already done this, and it didn't fix this. The sound worked earlier, and then stopped working after a kernel compile; this leads me to believe that this is the result of a kernel option. But what kernel option would force KDE to constantly keep the sound turning down.
The error message I had referred to something else. I don't have any error, just an annoying Volume 0% constantly in the middle of the screen.
