In writing this HOWTO I have had to draw heavily on the Sound-HOWTO By Jeff Tranter, and the Sound-Playing-HOWTO By Yoo C. Chung.
Thanks also to the other HOWTO authors whose works I have referenced:
Linux System Administrators Guide By Lars Wirzenius.
Linux Network Administrators Guide By Olaf Kirch.
Multi Disk System Tuning HOWTO By Stein Gjoen.
Also a big thank-you to all who have sent in feedback, comments and bug-reports.
