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 have to use USB speakers because I have a low profile box, and my computer locks up when I use the onboard audio and my screen card, a problem I had under Windows as well.
Anyways, I am digressing. What the problem is is that even if I load ALSA drivers into the kernel, and USB Audio and stuff, it only plays with the Alsa version of the OSS drivers as modules. And when it does play, if any program tries to access the harddrive, then the sound gets distorted, and sometimes the audio stops altogether.
I should point out that I am using Slackware 10, and Kernel 2.6.7. Also, if I boot into kernel 2.4.22, then I don't ahve this problem. In fact I don't have many problems at all with 2.4.22. Maybe I should go back. I just wish that I could use 2.6.7 as efficiently.
Thanks for any help, and if you need extra information, please don't hesitate to post me.
