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 a setup where I am using a PCI sound card, which works fine. I want to use a USB sound card with certain applications, keeping the on board one for "default' type situations - music/system sounds/video, etc.
I have to admit I've always found Linux sound to be a bit of a mystery.
When I open Sound Preferences, I can get either card to work fine. But, whichever card I am controlling then handles all audio. I cannot figure out how to direct some (my Amateur Radio) programs to use the USB card, while everything else uses the PCI card. It seems it is all or nothing.
The answer is probably straightforward, but I haven't come up with a solution after looking through all the threads here and on other Linux sites.
Distribution: Debian Testing, Stable, Sid and Manjaro, Mageia 3, LMDE
I am not sure you can have both active and have the OS support it that way. It certainly won't if your bios don't support such a setup. I would start by looking at that and the options there. You will probably need to read the manual for your MB.
