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 just did a fresh install of slack 11. At first setup recognized both my sound cards (one is a via82XX and the other is a Philips that uses the c-media driver). The Philips is the preferred card. Right after install it worked fine that card. I added all my multimedia stuff (flash and m-player) and the sound still worked properly. Now after a reboot neither sound card seems to work. I have ran alsaconf and set it up use the c-media card 4 times. I went and made sure that the right module is being loaded. See below:
justin@home:/etc$ cat modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci
alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci
Now, I try to run alsamixer after making sure that the c-media card is the one being loaded. Everytime I bring up alsamixer it says that it using the via card. I have tried stop and restarting rc.alsa, no luck. How do I alsa to disregard the via card and use the c-media one. It worked earlier today with my debian install. I have been trying to turn off the integrated via card with no luck finding it in the BIOS. Can you help me to get the c-media card working? Thanks.
