Please help new Linux user with Realtek AC'97 sound card issue!!

Hi All,

I'm a brand new user of Linux and I'm having a little bit of trouble.

I installed SuSE 9.2 Pro on my laptop and is working great; except there is a hardware issue with my Realtek AC'97 sound card. When I go into Yast, there is a sound card noted except it says that it isn't working. I tested it out with some CDs and mp3s and true enough.. there was no sound.

I really really want to start using Linux on a full-time basis so please help me fix this problem!! Since I'm brand new then please use as much explicit detailed instruction as possible

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
