What sort of device is this card (sound? video? ethernet?)? What does lspci say about the chipset on the card?

That's the line that describes the soundcard. It's a very common soundcard. The module that you need is called snd-intel8x0

sudo modprobe snd-intel8x0

Then run alsamixer to set the levels (type m to unmute the channels). Then save the levels with alsactl store

sudo alsactl store

@Andrew, you are running in a dream life with LFS, Ubuntu doesn't come with alsamixer(I dont think).

Yeah, you shouldn't have any problem with that sound card.
