Hi theonlyone, welcome to lq. What kernel version are you using? Have you looked into alsa?

Is there some reason you're using such an old distribution?

You can open a terminal and issue as root
# lspci
and then post the output and that will show us your actual
soundchip -- it's not actually AC'97

I have an intel8x0 series AC'97 system, and it runs fine with ALSA. I strongly suggest you check into it.

What kernel version are you using? As requested by Chinaman, please post the output from lspci -v.
good luck.
