decided to do a bit of exploration on the slack cd... realized i'd never viewed the contents of a cd before... i read through a few pages, and tried to mount it... i got curious because i'd never seen the contents of my other hard drive either... couldn't find it...

what exactly do you type in the console to view such things?

primary master is a WD120gb
primary slave is another WD120gb
secondary master is an LG DVD-rom
secondary slave is an LF burner...

any help would be appreciated on this matter as well, because the second hard drive is full of dvd rips that took me a LOOOOOOOOONG time to rip and i'd like to see them again!

Get linux kernel ver 2.4.20 and
cd /usr/src/linux
tar -zxvf 'linux-2.4.20.tar.gz' (or what eevr it is)

Now you can config ALSA again

Try to find best mirror to download kernel :]

===============
