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 been running slackware 10 w/ kernel 2.6.7 for a month or more now with no problems. When I rebooted today, I keep being told module snd-intel8x0 is not found. I haven't made any changes that would affect this, as far as I know.
I am completely puzzled. What would make a module that has been there disappear suddenly? This is why I love slackware. just when I think I know everything I need to, something new appears and shows me just how little I know.
I had the same problem with my sound module too. It was the emu10k1 module. It happened after I was trying to install a DC30 video capture card. Taking the card out and rebooting fixed the problem however.
/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/sound/pci is where I would expect the module to reside.
Just to make sure the file doesn't exist, do "locate snd-intel8x0"
If you use 2.6.7 form Slack10 CD2, with no recompile, just
1. reinstall ALSA packages from CD1 /slackware/l folder.
2. reinstall kernel packages (somewhere in /testing folder on CD2) (or may be just the kernel-modules*.tgz)
I am not sure how Pat chose to include alsa modules in his 2.6.7, i.e. as part of kernel-modules or as as part of alsa*.tgz.
I would try just step 2 alone, but in case ALSA problem is wider, I don't see how step 1 would hurt.
ON HOW IT HAPPENED:
Did you do any slapt-get or other "upgrade" things before that evil reboot?
