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, I've been running my new Slack 10.1 install for awhile now. All of a sudden, however, it seems to be having some sound issues. Whenever the system tries to process something (i.e. makes a call to the CPU), the speakers click and pop. I've tried different speakers, etc. the signal is being generated by the on-board sound card. I'm not sure why it started doing this all of a sudden. I haven't upgraded or installed anything that should affect the sound card.
My system is setup to dual boot to windows, so I thought I'd see if it does in there. Nope, it works just fine in windows. So, it's definately something with the drivers or something Linux loads up. It could be a resourse confict, but I'd need help on how to track that down.
Has anyone else had a problem like this? Also, I'm not sure that it's realated, but I couldn't get the NVIDIA unified drivers to install on my machine. I get "Unable to load the kernel module 'nvsound.o'" and it tells me to put the kernel source on my system (which is already there).
