Mandrak 10.0 Community and Soundblaster Live Value


I installed Mandrake 10.0 Community but can't get my Soundcard to work. After I log in, I get the following message:
Sound server infromational message:
Error while initilaizing the sound driver:
can't start sound i/o
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

I googled for this error, but either didn't find the correct solution or didn't understand it. I need somebody who can lead me through a step by step solution.

Thanks
