Here is your card;
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...&module=ca0106
Try; as root
Code:
modprobe snd-ca0106
if nothing happens that is good,means the module is there if not we will regroup;
if nothing happens;
Code:
alsaconf
what happens?

It is not going to work until modprobe works,no need to run alsaconf.If you want to get it to work first you need to see if there is any update's for your kernel and alsa.Use google and search your soundcard and mandrake 10.1 to see how someone else got it to work,and I will look around too.I can help but I don't use mandrake and they do things there own way.
also post uname -a

Your kernel doesn't have snd-ca0106.to get sound to work you will need to update.That module is new.

Lets hope so,was it the kernel rpm?If so you may need to update lilo,is that your boot loader? here is that guide;
http://www.mandriva.com/security/kernelupdate
then you will need to boot into the new kernel,save your old one.you may need to rename it and then edit lilo.conf and make sure to run lilo.Once you boot into the new kernel run modprobe again and see if the module gets loaded,or mandrake may see it not sure.Then alsaconf good luck and keep us posted Take your time and read up on the process until you understand and ask any ? here
