Thanks for the feedback.  As it happens, we are working on finishing
the Fedora 9 User Guide before the year's end, and there is still time
to add features such as explaining sound controls.

This is a great opportunity for someone who understands this to help
contribute to the User Guide.  You can join us during the holiday
virtual hackfest ...

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs_Project_Holiday_Virtual_Hackfest#Rewrite_User_Guide_to_Fedora_9

... and/or take a chapter to work on directly on your own time ...

If you haven't joined the Docs project, just send a self-introduction
and let us know what you want to work on ...

Cheers!
