Mandrake 10.1 no sound w/SB Live 5.1


I tried to play a cd using KsCD panel, it shows the contents of the cd and the volume indicator moves but not getting any sound. I checked the mixer and made
sure the volume levels are up. Next checked the Sound System configuration and
in Hardware tab, for "Select the audio device" it shows Autodetect and for "Select the MIDI device" it shows "EMU10k1 MPU-401 (UART) - Rawmidi 0 EMU10k1 MPU-401 (UART) - ALSA device"
Since I'm new to Linux I'm not sure what the problem might be, driver or something else.
Please let me know what possible options I have to resolve my sound issue.
Thank You

On konsole type:
/sbin/lsmod

It should give you all the modules loaded. You should have something like:

snd_via82xx 25888 2
snd_ac97_codec 71736 1 snd_via82xx
snd_pcm_oss 52320 0
snd_mixer_oss 18688 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 89480 4 snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 23940 1 snd_pcm
snd_page_alloc 9732 2 snd_via82xx,snd_pcm
snd_mpu401_uart 7168 1 snd_via82xx
snd_rawmidi 23840 1 snd_mpu401_uart
snd_seq_device 8524 1 snd_rawmidi
snd 53796 12 snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,s nd_seq_device
soundcore 9184 1 snd

(the sound part).
If it does then type
alsamixer
and get all the possible things to max.
Then use aply to play any.ogg or .wav file, usage (on konsole):
aplay <path to ..wav or .ogg file>
e.g. aplay /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav
If you hear any sound (as you must) then now the KsCD should work.
If it doesnt show any snd kernel moules:
then do
alsacfg
It should then load them

Best Of luck
