Do "lspci" and post the part about your sound controller for me to look at, it should be something like this,

Ok, you need to do "modprobe es1371" as root to load the module for your sound card. You can check it loaded with "lsmod", once that's done you should have sound but if not then check the permissions on /dev/dsp*, /dev/mixer* and /dev/sequencer*. To have the es1371 module load at boot, uncomment the line (remove the #) /sbin/modprobe es1371 in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
