Before I get too into Mandrake 10.1, should I get 2005LE? If so, where can I find it?

Ok, I'm in KDE and I went to sound system, was that right, nothing happened, I tried testing sound, and nothing happened. This is so confusing

Did you follow bigjohn's Mandriva instructions?

I just tried that, nothing happened, I didn't ever get step 7 done in the original instructions, so I don't think it's installed, I didn't know what sound driver I am looking for, or how to edit the config it said to edit

I did install ALSA, I posted the instructions on here, there on Page 2, step 7 is editing something, that is what I am stuck on, and I also can't do 8 cause I don't know what driver I am using.

Permission denied

You prob have a audio group or something that you need to add urself to.
Open a terminal,
type su
then your root password.
Then type
kcontrol&
And test the sound as root

In the console or the GUI that popped up? There is no test sound option, it is cut off in the GUI.

what? Are you already added to the sound/audio group? You should be with mandrake, I can't see why you wouldn't.
