configuring sound and printer


Hi i am pretty new to Linux... I have recently installed gentoo on my system, and then KDE. Now everything works fine. But there are two problems I have, I am not sure how to configure the sound on my system, no sound comes out at all.
Also I cannot find my printer on my system aswell.

Can anyone help me here?
Thanks

the gentoo forums are excellent (www.gentoo.org) and you are brave to try out Gentoo first.

Anyhow, trying running this as root in a console:

alsaconf

It will go through some steps to set up your sound card.

For the printer hit up the printer option under the control center in KDE.
