DVD and Sound doesn't work (slackware 10.2 kernel 2.4)

I can play DVDs but it doesn't play smoothly, it stops all the time, jumps etc. And the sound is not working at all! Any ideas what the problem may be?

Can you post information about your sound hardware?

Have you run? alsaconf and alsamixer yet. Slackware generally has sound muted after the first install.
As root,
after which
use "m" to unmute and arrow keys to up-down the volume meters. Esc key to get out of alsamixer

alsactl store

Do a search on LQ for something like "slow DVD playback". One (or more) threads helped me to fix it on my machine (Slack 10.1) but I can't remember exactly what I had to do .
