I'm newish to linux and have been trying a couple of ditros (Suse 9.0 and Madrake 10). I was able to get my sound working on Suse 9.0 but not my Alcatel Speedtouch ADSL modem so I decided to try Mandrake 10. I've now got the modem up and running (it was an absolute doddle) but have not been able to run sound.
When I start up, I get the message that /dev/dsp is Permission Denied. I think the system has detected the soundcard but it aint letting me use it. Here's the results from an lsmod:

Has anyone got any pointers as to what I can try to get this thing working?
All help appreciated.
