Yah, I tried running alsaconf first thing when i didnt have sound. I ran a modprobe and loaded the module manually too when i still didnt have sound after alsaconf said it was loaded. So the module is definatly loading/loaded, but no sound. I couldnt get this version to install to my sata drive either for some reason, beta 1 worked on my sata and i had sound so im not sure why it would change in a more advanced beta.
Thanks for the suggestion though.
