Try running alsamixer and make sure master or pcm channel is not muted.

Also look in /dev and make sure you have permissions to access the audio device, probably /dev/dsp0 /dev/mixer /dev/audio0 or /dev/audio/dsp0 ... etc.

Finally working...
I did a clean install and changed the driver from the default sound driver(intel8x0) to an "optional/alternative" driver (i810_audio), sound works perfect now.
For those without sound, it could be as simple as that.
