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.

From what I infer, I have to add asound.conf in /etc/
And it's contents should be what? number22 gave the output of two different files. What should I put in the file /etc/asound.conf that I create. Also, what about the other output? Ignore that or put it in another file somewhere else?
One fine is asound.conf put it in /etc/ (wich is the first one)
The other file is sound.conf, indeed you can change this name it's only important that you put it in /etc/modprobe.d/ (this is the second one). I suggest you also to read the modprobe.d readme file so you will understand what files here inside do.
