No Sound in Debian Etch


I finally got Debian Etch working, but there isn't any sound. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit

I also need help setting up a printer. I have a Dell All-In-One Photo 924

Alsa

If you are using alsa you will need to type alsamixer at the prompt and enable the sounds and then alsactl store to save the settings.

I think it has something to do with the driver because all settings are already on and I have had trouble with sound in knoppix.

Sometimes, some items in the mixer are required to be muted before you'll get sound, generally, not all items should be un-muted.
