Newbie's sound problem


I have a YAMAHA ISA PNP sound card that I tried to install in SuSe Linux 6.4. I did my best in following the instructions in the manual to load the drivers as kernel module. I configured them to the parameters that worked in M$ window$ (this card likes to be addressed as an SB Pro compatible: IO 220 IRQ 5 DMA 0).
I am much satisfied with all messages received from my system: he says all modules (sb.c) and drivers are correctly loaded. I get not a single error message, so I did a good job.
The only reason for frustration is that I cannot hear a sound when I play a midi or wav file in KDE. (To be more specific: I also tried the volume control of the players with no use).
My original intention was to attach my /etc/modules.conf and /etc/isapnp.conf files here, for reference, but I do not happen to find how to do this, so I close this message here.
Could you please help me?

P.S.
For those who may find that I have too many questions here: this is the last one, and, if solved, I will be over a very successful installation as a newbie to Linux. My modem, monitor (an ancient piece) and my VGA card (Trident 512) of which I feared the most work unexpectedly well in Linux. I could never take such a good picture and speed at this screen resolution (800x600) out of these pieces in any M$ Window$ version before.

Newbie's sound problem

I could solve the problem in the meantime:
Disabled Plug & Pray Op system present option in the BIOS.
