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….easy one….on my laptop running slackware 9.0 I get errors every time I boot because it is trying to load the joystick port of my sound card and my sound card has none….i know I have the right sound card selected….i recompiled my kernel to remove joystick support in the sound section and it still does this….what do I need to do to keep this piece of the module from trying to load?
Running kernel 2.4.20
IBM ThinkPad a22m
Cs46xx is the soundcard module
From my understanding there should be
two distinct modules, one for sound, one
for joystick... so you should be able to
either recompile your kernel with the
gameport for the cs46xx disabled, or
blacklist the joystick driver in
