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.

One thing you might try, is to run "alsaconf" or "alsaconfig". In slack 12, alsaconf is included, but I don't know about 9.1 (maybe alsaconfig is included instead of alsaconf)
If one of these commands works, run alsactl store, and you're on to the next step!
The long-term solution probably involves installing slack 12, because it comes with newer libraries and drivers.
Actually, this is my third semester. I just have a hard time with organization sometimes.
My PC was upgraded to Slackware 12 just before College started in the very beginning of September, either the fourth or the fifth.
The sound works perfectly fine now on my user account. ^____^
I didn't get the chance to implement a solution what with running around like a chicken w/ it's head cut off... The most promising solution (the one I was going to try) came from Piete, with placing the code in the boot-up text. That patch would have been just what I was doing, but only automatic. I'm curious still, but not enough to switch back to Slackware 9.1, because I like the updated version 12 much better.
Thank you so much to all who contributed!
It really meant a lot to me that my small problem received so much feedback in such a short amount of time. Because of this, I'll hold off on Ubuntu and stick with Slackware a bit longer... ( Not to mention that all my primary partitions are occupied with an OS already but ...you know ;D )
