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 just installed Slackware 10.2 onto my partner's machine, who dual boots between windows and slackware and hence often reboots. I am wanting to establish the following on that machine, so would appreciate any assistance please:
1. How can I automatically load aumix settings on each reboot into KDE?
2. is there a way of getting slackware to automatically recognise/mount a cdrom when it is placed into the tray and the tray closed?
3. on kde aumix offers settings for bass and treble, but using xfce (as I do) aumix only offers a truncated range of settings. Is this a kde-specific issue or can I also utilize this from within xfce?
Yes kmix has all the options you require. In the configuration is a tick box for restore volumes on login. Also becuase kmix is part of KDE, it integrates nicely with everthing else in KDE. You can even set the multimedia keys om keyboards to operate the volumes quite easily with it as well.
As far as your problem with xfce is concerned kmix would probably work as well, but I haven't tried it. Check what sound system is enabled in xfce maybe its using oss instead of alsa? that would give you less options.
